– VENUE –

Our new venue has a huge dancefloor, underground parking, two bars, a fabulous restaurant and deli/coffee shop – all with a BIG vibe and a smaller capacity than our previous years.  This means competitor numbers will be more limited this year for our first Championships event since 2019!  

 

Please note that NON DIGITAL Photo ID is required to enter the venue, and you will be required to join the Club ($2 per year) if you live within the 5km registered clubs boundary.

– HISTORY –

After a 5 year break due to the pandemic, this will be our 30th Ceroc Championships event in Sydney, and the first year of our new format and new name!  Previously our name was the NSW Ceroc Modern Jive & West Coast Swing Dance Championships or ‘CMJ Champs’ for short – now it’s a much easier Australian Ceroc Dance Championships, already affectionately known as ACDC!
