Dance in 2018

2018 brought with it much success for our Competition teams! These gorgeous girls from Years 1 to 12 auditioned in February this year and earned their position in Dare 2 Dance’s Performance Troupe Teams. Over the year, our teams competed in many competitions, including: Gold Coast Eisteddfod, Beenleigh Eisteddfod, DCE Asia Pacific Internationals, Australian All Star Cheerleading Federation (AASCF), Dance Life Unite, TFT State Finals & Nationals. We are so proud of our girls’ many successes, but are even more thrilled with their hard work ethic, their humbleness, how they support each other and the true joy they bring to everyone who watches them perform.
