Penrith Ballroom Dance is a Registered Provider for both the Active Kids and the Creative Kids programs.

Penrith Ballroom Dance offers a fantastic and enjoyable experience for children with their weekly specially designed children's classes where they are taught correct technique and movement.

Children who ballroom dance learn the qualities of respect, teamwork, self-confidence and a sense of joy and accomplishment.

These fun-filled classes are for children aged from 4 years up to and including Year 12 aged students. The classes cover the three styles of Ballroom Dancing - Modern Standard, Latin American and New Vogue Sequence Dances.

The children’s classes are held on a Monday afternoon and run in the school term, with the dates based on NSW Public School terms.  

Students are given the opportunity to complete medal tests at various times during the year. Our medal tests are conducted by The Australian National Dance Association (ANDA).

The class times, based on which medal the group is working toward, are as follows:

  • 4-8 year old class ~ 4.30 - 5.00 pm
  • Beginner (Level 1) class ~ 5.00 - 5.45 pm
  • Level 2 ~ 5.45 - 6.30 pm
  • Level 3 ~ 6.30 - 7.15 pm

Higher level medals require weekly private lessons.

Dress requirements for all participants of our children’s classes are as follows:

  • studio polo shirt (purchased through the studio)
  • proper ballroom dance shoes (please speak to Therese, our Principal, about where to purchase these)
  • girls to wear a knee-length flared black skirt
  • boys to wear black trousers
  • no bracelets, chains, chunky or dangly earrings to be worn
  • hair to be off the face, with shoulder length or longer hair to be tied back

Private lessons can also be arranged for anyone interested in Dancesport amateur or recreational competition dancing. Should you prefer, private lessons are also available to children for their medals.

So come along and join the exciting world of Ballroom Dancing!
