Text:7.25PM: It’s a pure trans-Tasman battle at tonight’s AsiaPacific Outgames Dancesport competition, with all the competitors hailing from the two rival nations. The entrants have stepped out in a grand, dramatic parade and received a rousing welcome from the boisterous crowd at the Wellington Town Hall. Compere Tamati Coffey welcomed the crowd saying “tonight we will see lots of boys dancing with boys and girls dancing with girls and both will be perfectly normal.” There are female couples in dresses all colours of the rainbow or beautifully tailored tuxes and male couples in fabulous shirts and suits. There is a huge range of categories and a long table full of medals on offer for dances of all skill levels. Daily News staff - 13th March 2011
