Rise above the challenge, dance to the top.


Are you highly motivated and looking for more of a challenge? Perhaps you have always had competitive spirit and need the drive in order achieve excellence. Maybe you love the performance aspect of DanceSport and just want to 'put-it-on' in front of a loud, cheering audience. Or maybe you just want the glamour and charm of dressing up and playing the part of being a true lady and gentleman.

If you fall into any or all of the above categories, then DanceSport is for you! Competitive ballroom dancing, or DanceSport, has gone through a revolution over the past decade. Today, the combination of artistry and athleticism has brought DanceSport into the forefront of mainstream media. TV shows such as "Dancing With the Stars" and "So you Think You Can Dance?" and Hollywood movies such as "Shall We Dance?", starring J.Lo & Richard Gere all showcase the challenging and rewarding aspects of the exciting world of DanceSport.


DanceSport competitions are held here in BC and around the world. There are many different competition levels based on proficiency and age. Even if you're a beginner, you can compete against other beginners in your own category. Are you a Senior worried about how you will be able to compete against 19 year olds? Not to worry; you can compete in your own Senior category. There are categories for ages 35+, 45+ and even 55+.

Competitions are great motivators to improve your dancing abilities and good testing grounds to see how much you have improved. If you're detail oriented, and you enjoy working together on a team (of 2), DanceSport competition is definitely something you should try!

Training for DanceSport competitions is very similar to preparing for any other type of sport or dance competition, in that you need to develop all aspects of your mind, body and spirit.

You need dedication, focus and the will to be the best…
