The dance floor beckons again for 12 Border personalities willing to perform a new routine publicly for the sake of everyone's health.
Cancer Council NSW launched the seventh annual Stars of the Border Dance for Cancer on Tuesday, resuming preparations for a gala night cancelled last year owing to the pandemic.
The 2021 event is scheduled for May 14 at Albury Entertainment Centre, where participants from the media, business, sport and emergency services will reveal the results of dance lessons that begin on Friday.
Each star also has a fundraising target of $3000.
