"Deep down as a little girl I always wanted to be a ballerina,” Jo said.

"But at 162cm tall, I was not built for the ballet world.

"Whether on the sporting field, a fancy dress cancer charity event that I have supported, I always bring my strong competitive nature along for the ride.”

Jo will be dancing with Joanna Suter and Clement Maura from the Passada School of Afro Latin Dance.

The local stars will be fundraising to help Cancer Council NSW continue its groundbreaking research and provide support services and programs in the local area.

The community are invited to get involved and support the cause, with Jo, Joanna and Clement asking for your support and dancing tips.

Tickets to the event can be purchased at Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club or by phoning 66842533.
