We recommend that you begin your competition dancing with private lessons on your own, or with your partner. Your coach will then recommend a competition to begin, and help you prepare your debut from the dancing to your presentation, grooming and etiquette for competition. We can even help you with a partner to join you in the lessons and competition, until you find your own regular partner.

Who does Dancesport Competition?

There are DanceSport competitions for all levels of dancer, and like any physical pursuit - to make it to the elite level you need to understand and master the basics first.

Dance Kingdom boasts a team of professional dancers and internationally trained coaches who help our competitors navigate a successful competitive career. Dancesport competition is conducted under the rules of Dancesport Australia. You can compete in three styles, Modern/Standard Ballroom, Latin American and New Vogue. You begin competition as a Recreational (beginner) competitor, and then once you have a regular partner you can register and enter Level C.  As you become successful, you progress up through the levels to level A (the highest Amateur Level) and then onto Professional. You compete in one of the six age groups Juvenile (under 12) Junior (12-16), Youth (16-19) Adult (16-35) Masters 1 (35 and over)  and Masters 2 (50 and over), so it is never too late to start Dancesport Competiton.

How do you get involved?

If you are serious about DanceSport competition then you'll need to find a partner. At social Ballroom dancing events or within lessons, we recommend approaching a fellow student with whom you feel you might like to compete with, and ask them if they are interested. Alternatively, ask your teacher to approach them for you, or to suggest someone.
