Australian Professional Rising Star Champions

The Professional Rising Star Championship was a highlight of the Australian DanceSport Championship Saturday night program. We are not sure what year it commenced however, we do know that it ended with it’s last championship event in 2002. It was a fabulous stepping stone for new, up and coming Professionals and a wonderful honour to win this event before the Professional Open events on the Sunday.

If anyone has any records of any of the previous winners of these prestigious titles, please email us at info@outsidechange.com
