Who does Dancesport Competition?

The best way to commence Dancesport Competition is through private dance lessons. Like any physical pursuit - to make it to the elite level you need to understand and master the basics first. Dancesport Kingdom is one of the few studios that boasts a team of Professional 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, 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 Amatuer 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.

What should I do now?

If you are serious about DanceSport competition then you'll need to find a partner. At social Ballroom dancing events, I 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.
