Museum wins International Dance-off 2018!

Thanks to massive community support we did it! The powerhouse of dance that is the South Canterbury Museum can now proudly claim their place as Champions of the International Museum Dance off for 2018.

At the beginning of the 24 hour voting window, New Zealand slept.  By the time we awoke the Science Museum of Virginia had built a lead of over 12000 votes - a lead they held most of the day.  But, as night fell in America, New Zealand was aroused from its slumber (i.e. finished the working day), and got down to some serious voting.

Over the course of the early evening the other competitors fell away and the Science Museum of Virginia's lead crumbled.  With only a few hours of voting left, America awoke, only to find themselves well behind, thanks to some massive community support. A final lead of some  24,000 votes was quite simply incredible!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who voted the Museum through, and congratulations on a well-fought campaign to our competitors who can hold their heads high.
