Need Help to find material relating to 1958 - The wist dance in Auckland.

I am desperate to hunt down photos or any kind of memobilia videos from this time period. I was the one who won that contest in 1958, doing Chubby Checkers famous dance 'the twist'with, "the Quintikis Showband". My former dance partner at the time, won the NZ Twist Championship Dance at the Auckland Town Hall. I would like to hear from the great chubby checker, but who knows?
