Candy Lane represented New Zealand in London and on the World Ballroom Dancing Circuit since she was 15 years of age. Having already won every New Zealand title available to her she went on to hold the Australasian & South Pacific Championship undefeated for 5 years running.
Before returning home Candy made her mark on the International dance scene, by being the first New Zealander to make both the Ballroom and Latin American finals in the most prestigious competition in dancing - "The British Open to the World Championship".
Candy went on to play the lead role of "Anita" in the original Leonard Bernstein production of "West Side Story", at her Majesty's Theatre in London's Westend just prior to returning home Candy was asked to perform for Leonard Bernstein a salute held for him in London, where she received a standing ovation. Candy also took part in a special performance for the Royal Family.
Candy is an International adjudicator and has judged the Ballroom and Latin American World Championships she was also the first New Zealander to lecture at the world congress.

The conference weekend is now over and things have returned to normal. I am pleased to report that both the Con Artists and Candy Lane Dancers were much more than satisfactory. The evening was a great success, largely due to the way Clare performed the duties of MC and the atmosphere created as the Con Artists mixed and mingled with the guests. They provided hilarity where ever they were and the skit they performed was topical, clever and funny.
The Candy Lane Dancers were an excellent contrast and their routines were executed with skill and professionalism. I think most of the room felt some degree of envy as they danced their way round the stage. (our photographer certainly had more photos of them than any other group from the entire conference).
On a personal note, as the person responsible for Saturday evening, it was a pleasure to work with both groups and at no time did I feel anxious or that proceedings could turn to custard. We have had much feedback from the Rotarians who attended and there has not been a single word of criticism or disappointment from anyone. We have been asked numerous times about who the the Con Artists were so I have passed your name onto them for future reference. The Candy Lane Dancers are well known and reinforced their well deserved reputation for spectacle and excellence.
Thanks Pete for your work in booking the two groups and should I need to provide entertainment at any time in the future I would contact you for assistance.
Regards, Julie Starnes
