What is Dancestar?
Dancestar was created to bring a unique flavour to the competitive dance world. Here dancers can shine in solos, duo/trios small, large and mega troupes, in a variety of styles, working from Regional level to the National stage.
Aim of Dancestar
To provide dancers of all ages throughout the country with an avenue to improve their performance skills, confidence, talent and self-esteem through participation in a healthy and fun competition, in front of a live cheering audience.
History of Dancestar
In 2013, after 25 years of providing performance sports events Australia wide, in a number of disciplines, TFT Sports and Event Management was delighted to bring the four most popular genres under one incredible umbrella.
For the first time anywhere in the world, athletes, performers and dancers are able to compete in an Event to support both performance, culture and sportsmanship from a Regional to a National level!
Give us a call at Head Office on 07 5470 2007 and we will send you out a Starters Package!
Sections are available for all ages and abilities whether you are just starting out or are an experienced choreographer or athlete.
Your Getting Started Package will help you with team selection, music, putting the team together, training and costumes.
Rules & Guidelines
Please contact TFT Sport & Eventment Management Head Office on 07 5470 2007 for a copy of the current Rules and Guidelines
The official Rules and Guidelines and Entry Forms are released in late January each year and are sent out by email to all our registered Schools, Clubs and Coaches.
If you would like to be included on the mailing list, please email us via the "Contact Us" box on this website with your School / Club name, contact Coach / Coordinator, mailing address, phone and fax numbers.
All current Coaches receive their Annual updates of the Rules on November 26 each year, along with the proposed dates for all Events, to assist with preparation of new teams for the coming year.
TFT Sports & Event Management's policy, in line with our philosophy, is to assist our kids and athletes to enjoy their performance and competition by increasing self esteem, confidence, fitness and a love for improving their abilities and developing their skills over the years they are involved in the world of Dancestar and beyond.
During each Event, the Results are announced and posted backstage during Presentations, and then within one week of the Event, regardless of where you live in Australia, the Coaches will receive a full breakup of how the score was attained, a comparative sheet showing other teams total scores, and feedback (at prelims and Spring Challenges). Those results, along with the Rules and Guidelines and the Coaches own expertise, will allow the kids to understand their placing and scores.
When the results become mere numbers on a website, we feel the lesson and importance of performance can be lost and in the end that is in conflict with what we want the kids to gain from their Dancestar experience. So our policy is to leave the discussion of who scored what and why, to the experienced coaches and allow the kids and parents to utilize the website for fun, memories and reference.
Each year we will update photos, tributes, stories, acknowledgement of our National Gold, Silver and Bronze Medalists, anecdotes of fabulous coaches / kids / schools and supporters and favourite moments.
We thank you for your interest in how our Results system works and hope you will share our philosophy of participation, winning with a smile and humility, placing with dignity and being proud of where you came, no matter what that result, with your children, School and Clubs.
In the end, they are all winners….that is what we believe, and feel they need to know!
me. It's easy
Welcome to Dancestar - an exciting and innovative concept, bringing together schools, kids, parents, coaches, teachers, clubs, and families in fun and healthy events throughout Australia!
