Kate Simpkin’s Norfolk Island Line Dancing Tour

Friday, April 19, 2019


There’s always a special zing in the air when the indomitable Kate Simpkin is on Norfolk with her Line Dancers! There’s a strong possibility that many locals have come across Kate and her group –possibly at the Sunday markets flash-mob dance, kicking up their heels with Lully at Paradise Hotel, or on a number of island tours!


With forty-five dancers in her group, Kate ran five Line-dancing lessons from Rawson Hall, which was also the venue for a Beach Theme Social Night. Other themed dinners included an Op Shop night at the RSL and a Hollywood themed farewell dinner at Bounty Lodge. The group also enjoyed a half day Island tour and Welcome dinner at Paradise Hotel (where Lully had them up and dancing!).  Kate also ran her own Kate’s 5 Star Extra’s where a number of the group also went to dinner at Dino’s, on a Bushwalk & Lunch Kate-Style, to the Maze & Hilli Goat Cheese and Wine ‘Red & Green Strawberry Theme’; and a Fish Feast followed by a Ghost Tour.


At the end of an incredible week of dancing, dressing up, socialising and touring we hope that Kate and all in her group have thoroughly enjoyed their Norfolk Island Line Dancing holiday. We will miss the energy in the air as you depart – and hope to welcome you all back to Norfolk again one day soon.
