Otaki Remembers Local Dances

26th March 2012
Otaki Debutantes - 1963

‘Stepping Out’ is the new exhibition at the Otaki Museum which celebrates the history of dance and socialising.

This light-hearted waltz down memory lane recalls country halls, fabulous frocks, debutantes, American marines, – and romances formed on the dance floor.

If you remember local dances,  you are invited to bring in your dresses, shoes, bling or photos and add your presence to the exhibition.

You might want to look through some of our photos and help identify some of the name-less faces.  You might just want to remember the halcyon days of socialising and dancing.  Whatever your reason – ‘step out’, come in and enjoy the old-time tunes and festive atmosphere!

 On until mid-June 2012.
