RDA Kids Dance Club
sDanceSport 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 Terms 1 & 3 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 Junior Contemporary & Hip Hop Classes! This is an exciting new avenue for us, and we are looking forward to these growing 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!
- Contemporary (ages 6 – 12) at 4.15pm – 5.00pm on a Tuesday
- Hip Hop (ages 6 – 12) at 4.15pm – 5.00pm on a Thursday

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.
We are offering a Competition Preparation Class on a Friday at our Graceville Studio especially for RDA kids who want to be ready for competitions and understand how competitions work.
- Competition Prep Class (all ages) – 5.45pm – 6.30pm every Friday
