Maurice Dance

The first Maurice Dance took place on 16 Oct 2015 at the National Library of New Zealand, Wellington, New Zealand.

The aim was to build upon the Maurice Gee base r-ball.


A report on the Maurice Dance compiled by Charlotte Christensen (National Library of New Zealand) includes the results of the feedback survey and a summary of the afternoon's discussions.
