      We're back! After two incredibly successful events, Rotorua Community Hospice is putting on the 3rd installment of Harcourts Dancing with the Stars. Over the past two years with the help of our wonderful community we’ve raised over $250,000 for the Rotorua Hospice. Twenty local Rotorua identities are paired up and give up 16 weeks of their time to practice and train, having never danced before. In a one night only performance, they’ll take to the stage to see who takes out the coveted winner’s spot and help fundraise for Hospice. They'll also be a live and silent auction, entertainers and celebrity judges!
