It is with great sadness that DME must announce the cancellation of the 2021 WNDC in September.
The ongoing lockdown in NSW since the end of June, the ensuing restrictions on density, sporting events and social distancing, not to mention interstate travel, means there is no possible way for the event to run.

Previous update 23 June 2021...
As you may be aware, at 11am the Premier announced a range of changes in the guidelines associated with COVID 19 across Sydney. These include:
- Mask’s compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings
- No singing by audiences at indoor shows
- No dancing at indoor hospitality venues
- No standing at hospitality venues
- 1 person per 4 square metre rule
The Premier also clearly stated that as of 4pm today, to avoid all non-essential gatherings.
The wellbeing of our DanceSport community is always at the forefront of our practice and decision making, whilst adhering to current guidelines of NSW Health. As a result of these very recently updated guidelines, it is with great disappointment that the Wollongong National DanceSport Championship will not be occurring on 26 & 27 June 2021.
We would like to recognise the considerable effort put into this production by the DME Organising Committee, our scrutineer, music, and production team.
I will update you further on whether the event can proceed at a later date in 2021.
I thank you for your continual support and understanding.
President, Dance Move Engage
