I'm fundraising for...

Having grown up on a Riverina sheep farm, Jodie rouseabouts far better than she rumbas. But, she believes it's good to shake things up every now and then! This year is as fitting as any to get out of her comfort zone as it's 20 years since she began working as a journalist at The Border Mail in Wodonga.

Together with her husband, John Chanter, they are raising two daughters, who are both dance-obsessed; the 13-year-old in ballet and the nine-year-old in hip hop. For Jodie growing up with Little Athletics and tennis for recreation, she has long been the least educated dance mum in the studio. With that in mind, two years ago she joined a Monday night adult barre class. "Not unlike bar night at Charles Sturt University - Bathurst in the early 1990s, I am always the first one to get dizzy and the last one to leave!"

As a columnist and food writer for The Border Mail, Jodie relishes sharing foodie tidbits with readers. Her other pet loves are her 16-year-old labradoodle, baking, recycling and Scandi noir.

“Having lost family, work colleagues and friends to cancer, I am keen to help raise money and awareness for a dreaded disease that touches too many lives. Stars of Border 2020 is just as terrifying to me, as it is timely!”

To describe Jodie’s dance style in three words: Not on pointe!

Kim Blanza

Dance has always been his first love and will continue practicing the art form. Kim began his dance journey in 2008, as a self-taught dancer right here in Albury/Wodonga. His interest in the Hip-Hop culture became a burning passion which lead to sharing it with others.
