Gumboot Waltz pays tribute to an iconic Kiwiana, with a few beats added to this traditional dance to accommodate the clumsiness of the heavy-duty footwear.

This piece was given its first public performance by the Burnside High School Orchestra in 2005 and subsequently recorded by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra at the 2006 NZSO/Todd Young Composer Awards.
