DANZ in partnership with Pub Charities collaborated with the CUBA DUPA Festival. 

The DANZ Dance Zone in Swan Lane was a tremendous hit with Wellington Crowds.
An estimated 1200 people took the opportunity to join workshops led by some extraordinary tutors. It was heart-warming to see so many people dancing to fantastic live music, with large crowds watching. Photo: Keane Chan
