Press Release

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the 5th Outside Change Cup & Freedom To Dance Ball scheduled for October 30, 2021, will not be going ahead as planned.

After the Victorian Government announcements, the roadmap planned will not allow us to hold our event which means we have come to a decision to cancel for 2021.

The 2022 Outside Change Cup & Freedom To Dance Ball will be held on Saturday June 11, once again at the magnificent Plaza Ballroom in Melbourne, please put this date in your diary. 

For everyone who had entered for 2021, these entries will be cancelled, and we will start a fresh in the new year with a new Dance Sheet, Information and Entries.
