RDA Kids Dance Club
DanceSport is the unique activity that combines both sport and the art of dance. It allows participants to improve their physical fitness, coordination and balance. Here at RDA Kids Club, we promote family participation, help the children develop social interaction and work on building a family team environment within our studio. DanceSport also builds discipline for growing kids, with the structured approach to classes. This is something that can support children throughout the many different emotions of life, providing skills that can see them right through adulthood. A sport for all ages – and one that has many health benefits.
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
- 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

RDA Kids Dance Club is also excited to announce our second location at Paddington. Currently due to demand, we will only be running the Teen Groovers Class on a Thursday afternoon, Paddington Hall, Moreton St, Paddington:
- Teen Groovers (ages 10 – 18) at 4pm – 5pm
As demand grows in this location, we will be offering a full suite of classes. Please contact James on 0401 034 515.
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 2020, 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.
