Newcomer Growth - 600 people try DanceSport!

Thanks to the State Government's annual Active in April campaign, more than 600 Victorians participated in DanceSport for the first time.

This is a huge increase from the previous year, when over 100 people took up the special offer to get a taste of training on the dance floor.

Definitions of Divisions and Cross-Division Events

What is a sporting 'Division' and why does DanceSport use them? A "Division" is a grouping of competitors who comply with a particular set of regulations.

We define the three Divisions:

  • Professional
  • Amateur
  • Recreational

Plus we explain the cross-divisional events:

  • Pro/Am
  • Teacher/Student
  • Teacher/Recreational
