The RSCDS New Zealand Branch Inc. extends a warm invitation for all dancers to attend the Summer School to be held from 28 December 2018 to 5 January 2019 in Nelson.

Nelson is a city on the South Island of New Zealand, facing Tasman Bay. It's known for local arts and crafts stores, and art galleries. It's also a popular base for nearby vineyards and the Abel Tasman National Park. Established by English settlers in 1841, the city's history is showcased at Founders Heritage Park, a living museum with a vintage railway.
