The event pairs twenty Rotorua identities with little or no dance experience into ten couples. They are professionally trained over 15 weeks to perform for one night only. Four celebrity judges score each couple to determine an overall winner.
Back for its fourth consecutive year, the event has had a name change but is sticking to its winning formula. The goal of the evening is to raise over $100,000 to enable Hospice to care and support over 420 patients with a terminal illness each year.
