RDA Kids Dance Club

Dancing has many benefits socially, emotionally and physically for individuals of all ages. Dancing can also be an outlet for children suffering ADHD, as a lot of kids suffering from this illness, are able to relax with the music, and enjoy the structure of the class. It helps children develop better social skills, builds confidence as well as helps prevent against diseases such as Diabetes, by adding mental and physical exercise to daily activities. Dancing also builds discipline for growing kids, a trait that can be seen in many other walks of life.

We love (and encourage) our parents/guardians/grandparents etc to stay during classes and watch what the children learn.  We feel that this supports the students, and makes them feel more relaxed in this environment. And besides, it may encourage you to join in!

RDA Kids Dance Club will run to Queensland school terms.  There will be 3 Ballroom classes on a Thursday afternoon at our Forest Lake Location, The Forest Lake Community Hall, 60 College Avenue, Forest Lake:

  • Tiny Tots Ballroom (ages 4 – 6) at 5.00pm – 5.30pm  *NEW CLASS Commencing 31st January 2019*
  • Mini Groovers Ballroom ( ages 6 – 9) at 5.30pm – 6.00pm
  • Teen Groovers Ballroom (ages 10 – 18) at 6.15pm – 7.00pm

We will be running these classes as Medal classes, and students will sit an exam at the end of Term 2 of the Queensland School Term. Children will be learning dances from 3 styles, in the styles of Standard, Latin & New Vogue (Australian sequence dancing) and work towards the medal. 

In addition, we have been able to secure the services of a new teacher, Miss Abbey, to start our Hip Hop Classes! This is a new avenue for us, and hope that it will grow within our company just like Ballroom has.  We will add more classes to meet the demand, so come along and see what it is all about!

  • Hip Hop (ages 6 – 15) at 4.15pm – 5.00pm *NEW CLASS commencing 7th February 2019

Competitions

While not all dancers choose to compete, dancing in a competition can foster self-esteem for young dancers.

Dancesport is the name given to competitive Ballroom Dancing. Competitions are held on local, regional, National, and International levels. Dancers compete in groups against other dancers of the same age and skill level. Although competition may bring visions of elaborate costumes, covered in rhinestones, at the juvenile level (up to the age of 13) there is a restricted dress standard.

In 2019, we will be looking to develop a competition team, looking to compete in our competitions throughout Brisbane & outer areas (Gold & Sunshine Coast).

Should your child be interested in competitions, please contact us here, or speak with any of the coaches and we would be more than happy to provide further information.
