The Really Important Stuff

The venue has 13 reasonably priced bars and restaurants downstairs, plus there is a bar right outside our ballroom that will be open each evening. Please be reminded that drinking and dancing is generally not a good combination.  Anyone considered to be behaving inappropriately or to be under the influence of alcohol or other substance which may cause harm or offence will be asked to leave the venue, and in the case of competitors, will be disqualified from the competition.

The History

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 and 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!
