A unique class designed for children who show a passion and aptitude for learning dance and wish to accelerate their improvement and to perform.
Less about talent, and more about learning and passion.
DanceSport EVOLVE* is an initiative of ballroom champion Monica Fincham. It was developed as she saw a need for a more structured approach for children to develop dance, skills, co-ordination and flexibility. DanceSport EVOLVE is for children who start to engage and love to perform, and wish to develop the dancing further.
DanceSport EVOLVE* - explore how far your child can go.
Our DanceSport EVOLVE* program is for your child to improve their movement skills in dance to fast track their learning. During the class they will be actively engaging their bodies through a range of technical drills both with and without music, and through a stretch and flexibility program. Hip action, footwork, leg action, drive, arms and body engagement will all be perfected. But, more than ever, there is also an opportunity for kids love to perform. Following this class is the EVOLVE* Performance Team - 30 minutes of choreography that will be performed - in costume - at the end of each term. Entry into the performance team is by invitation only.
We are passionate about helping our students achieve their own goals, by encouraging their progress and developing their confidence.
We are passionate about developing each student's dance skills in such a way that we instil a love for dance that grows deeper and stronger with each passing year.
We are passionate about using each word, interaction and teachable moment as a gift we give to each student and to consistently affirm how highly each student is valued.

How do I enrol my child in Dancesport EVOLVE*?
DanceSport EVOLVE* is an invitational program and is not for all kids. DanceSport EVOLVE* is for children who engage with the sport and want to take their dancing to the next level. The EVOLVE* program allows your child group performing opportunities, costumes, a dance troupe atmosphere, and a first class skills program for your child to fast-track their dance skills and coordination. If you are unsure as to whether your child will like DanceSport, we recommend the DanceSport ENGAGE* program. DanceSport ENGAGE* can be enjoyed by all kids who love learning step pattens, new dances and the thrill of dancing with a partner. It can go a long way to improving their confidence in all aspects of life.
"It is amazing to see how much confidence and self esteem she has gained from her dancing achievements. She has expressed how comfortable she feels with the teaching staff and always looks forward to learning more." John and Cora, Parents
