Tasmanian Open DanceSport Championships off to a dancing start

Tasmania’s most glamourous dance competition had its official 2018 launch at the Country Club on Friday.

Event organiser Andrew Palmer said the Tasmanian Open DanceSport Championships were Tasmania’s only ballroom dancing championships.

“A ballroom blitz is about to take over Tasmania and we could not be more excited,” he said.

“This event will see hundreds and hundreds of officials, competitors and their support crew arrive in the apple isle from across Australia, New Zealand, China, the United Kingdom and Germany.

“This is our moment to shine, and not only on the dance floor, but as our visitors explore our beautiful streets, eat in our world-class restaurants, and spend time with our exceptional people.”

The Tasmanian Open DanceSport Championships will take place on August 11 at Launceston’s Silverdome.

Entries are now open online through DanceSport Australia.

Tickets to the event are available through Ticketek on 13 28 49.
