Put away your achy, breaky heart line dance fans: the Norfolk Island Line Dancing Festival is a happening thing again in 2006.

Kiwi line dance fans are on the count down to June when they step onto the stage at what is regarded as one of the biggest line dance programmes in the South Pacific.

Charismatic Australian-based New Zealand choreographer Bill Larson again leads the way to the wall for line dance fans.

About Norfolk Island: Discovered by Captain Cook in 1774, Norfolk Island was first settled as a British penal colony in 1788 through to 1856. On June 8, 1856, the island was re-inhabited by a community from Pitcairn Island, descendants of the Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian companions. Known today as Norfolk Islanders, they form a majority of the 1,800 resident population. Norfolk Island is renowned for its spectacular coastal scenery, colourful history, sporting and cultural activities, convict heritage and tax-free shopping.
