Sport Information


Dancesport is an opportunity for students to learn ballroom and Latin dancing. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced dancers.

Students will learn four routines: Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rhythm Foxtrot, and Jive. These routines are traditionally partnered dances, therefore students will be expected to practise and perform with a partner. Students will rotate dance partners frequently until the most suitable combinations are identified and assigned by the coach and manager.
