Dance Information

Kamo is a small community (population around 8,000) in New Zealand. It lies a short distance north of central Whangarei which is the most northern city in NZ. Whangarei city boundaries have included Kamo since the 1960s. The name Kamo is a Māori word for eyelash, but has it also been thought to mean "bubble up", as there are hot springs in the locality.

The Kamo Karousel was dedicated to dancers at Whangarei and Kamo Scottish Country Dance clubs.
