Gorgeous gowns and thousands of sparkly stones, tail suits, elaborate hair and makeup, smooth beautiful dancing around a gorgeous dance floor, Dancesport Competition is the pinnacle of Dancesport. Dancesport Kingdom can offer competitive coaching for those just starting their competitive dance career, to the highest level of Dancesport Competition. Our team of dance coaches includes former National and Victorian Champion Monica Fincham, and current professional dancer Leighton Stevenson, Tamy and Andy Phillips, Professional Latin Champions - plus a highly qualified teaching team, are ready to take your dancing to the next step. Competitive ballroom dancing or Dancesport is a great way to become the best dancer you can. 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.
We advise the best way to commence Dancesport Competition is to do a few Awards first. Like any physical pursuit - to make it to the elite level you need to understand and master the basics first. 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.
Being a part of the DanceSport Competition is inspirational. Watching those couples who have achieved the highest level of dance are simply inspiring to watch.
"To excel in DanceSport competition you need to have GRIT - that is determination, passion and to never, EVER give up." Monica, Principal and National Dancesport Champion
