The 13-year-old was asked to be in the team by Kiwi choreographer, Kiel Tutin, who has worked with stars such as Jennifer Lopez. Manaia, who has been dancing since she was three-yearsold, says she was “shocked” by the invitation and is looking forward to competing in Body Rock Junior. She’s been travelling to Auckland each weekend for practice. “It’s really hard-out, it’s full hands-on training and we run the set over, over and over again,” she said. The year 9 student spends most of her spare time training or teaching. •Turn to page 4 Book online via our website OPEN 7 DAYS Ph: 343 3661 | 4 Yaldhurst Rd Plans for Bishopdale Mitre 10 site may be revealed today • By Sophie Cornish BUSINESSMAN Doug Spence has bought the former Mitre 10 building in Bishopdale which has sat empty for two years.
