The NSW Line Dance Ball Committee recently held a meeting via Video Chat and we agreed that due to the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and the health restrictions still in place it is not viable to hold such a large event such as our annual Ball in 2022. The decision to cancel our Ball once again was very difficult.
We are therefore looking at holding fundraising events similar to this year. We would like to invite Instructors, both from Sydney, regional NSW and the ACT to conduct a fundraising event as an alternative to the annual Ball in their area in April, or whenever it suits your classes, venue etc. in 2022.
The committee will conduct a fundraising social at the Don Moore Community Centre, North Rocks, on Saturday 23 April, 2022. This is the date that was scheduled for the Ball.
Our theme for 2022 is “April Showers” with the colours of blue and silver.
We have invited Josh Talbot to choreograph a dance especially for our fundraising activities in 2022. More information regarding this will be released in early 2022.
“Let’s Line Dance For Sick Kids”
Please note that we have secured a booking at the Quaycentre, Olympic Park for 15 April, 2023 for our 13th Annual Ball.
Due to the current uncertainty surrounding Covid restrictions, we have made the decision to celebrate 2022 with individual Club fundraiser socials similar to our 2021 celebrations, rather than one united Ball. We hope that by 2023 we will be able to resume our Grand Ball. The date planned for that event is 15 April, 2023
