Coronavirus stole the big year of competition champion dancing duo Cassandra Donnelly and Joel Tongue had planned, but they're thrilled to return to performing this month.
The sister-and-brother act will swing on the stage in front of their home town at Club Local on August 22.
Visiting show Club Soda had originally been scheduled for that night, but it was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
When Dubbo Regional Theatre created Club Local as its own night of cabaret-style entertainment, it turned to the Fantasy DanceSport duo for Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers pizzazz.
Mrs Donnelly said they were thrilled to be asked to dance at the show.
"This year has been one of ups and downs for everyone," she said.
"At the start of this year we were super excited to go into 2020 as NSW top professional new vogue couple, after dancing the Australian DanceSport Championships in December last year.
"We were pumped and ready to compete at all major championships in Australia and also some overseas championships."
Mrs Donnelly said sadly COVID-19 had other ideas.
"So just to be able to dance for an audience is just so exciting, it's given us something to work towards and we always love the opportunity to dance locally as we rarely get to dance for our home town," she said.
The night will feature the Tin Roof Big Band, a variety of performers and a mystery artist, and Mrs Donnelly said it would appeal to everybody.
"It's a great opportunity to get out of the house and enjoy some live entertainment, and also support our local talent," she said.
"It's going to be a great night."
