After years of watching their children on stage, Dubbo's Dads of Dance decided to take action.
Ten dads, who all have children at Stepping Out Dance Factory, have put on their dancing shoes for the Stars of Dubbo Dance for Cancer.
Warwick McCarthy, Brain Amos, Jason Brown, Brad Widdison, Tim Nichols, Daniel Smith, Nelson Kelly, Hale Gordon, Jim Sarantzouklis and Luke Scott are showing their children how it's done.

For Mr Sarantzouklis, the nerves are starting to grow.
"The last time I danced was my bridal waltz 15 years ago and I didn't practice for that and the time before that was the deb ball and that was 30 years ago," he said.
To start with Mr Sarantzouklis said he dreaded going to the practices with Rikki Slack-Smith.
"I was always out of step and saw some of the guys were getting it and thought 'how are they getting it so quickly?' You've got to try and remember all the moves as you go along. But now we're starting to let ourselves go because we know the steps," he said.
"It makes you understand what the kids go through. I have a new appreciation for what it takes to deliver a routine."
For Mr Kelly, it's been the opposite.
"It's better than I thought it would be. I can't wait for training. I say to my wife 'what days do I have training this week?'" he said.
The WAGS (wives and girlfriends) have being working hard behind the scenes to coordinate the group and their fundraising efforts. More than $15,000 has already been raised.
"We're the stars of the show but they're the stars behind the scenes," Mr Kelly said.
And Mr Kelly said there definitely were a few stars in the team who were natural performers, including Luke Scott, Hale Gordon and Jason Brown.
"The hardest part about having a group is that you're not on your own. When you're in a group when one of us spins one way and the other spins the other way, Miss Ricki just pounces," Mr Kelly said.
"Jason used to be the captain but he uses the wrong legs and goes the wrong way. We know not to follow him."
Mr Sarantzouklis said Miss Rikki had been a fantastic teacher and was very patient with the group.
He said the community had big expectations for the Dads of Dance and he hoped they delivered.
The Stars of Dubbo Dance for Cancer raises money for the Cancer Council.
Mr Kelly said the Dance Dads had no fundraising goal in mind as long as they raised the highest amount.
The gala night will be held on May 11 at the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre. Tickets are sold out.
