As our Students prepare to go “Back to School”, I thought it would be a great time to highlight the benefits of Dance not only to your child’s health but also to their education. Now we all know dance is a great active kids sport. From improving co-ordination and strength to increasing flexibility, dance has many physical benefits and best of all it keeps our kids fit and healthy while they have a great time. But did you know that Dance is also a SuperFood when it comes to boosting your child’s productivity in the classroom? Here are 5 ways Dance will help to improve your child’s learning!
Your child has expressed an interest in doing dance classes, you know there are dance studios in the area but have no idea which one you should choose. This is a dilemma that many parents face.

Where do you start looking, what is important, how do you know what to look for? Here at Footloose we know that we aren’t the right choice for every dance family, so here are some of our top tips to consider which may help you to find YOUR Perfect Dance Studio! Read More
This week’s Blog is a bit more of a Blog-Share. Last week while scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I happened upon an article about ballet. While the title “The Effects of Ballet Classes Schools Don’t Tell You” is slightly misleading, the content of the article is spot on and once again reminded me just how important my job is and the lasting impact it can have on the future generations.
In the world of Dance there are some dancers who are naturally flexible, and some dancers who aren’t – I was the latter. I stood in awe of the those around me who could kick their legs up to their head and do the splits without needing to stretch. They made it look so easy and I was always frustrated and disappointed that I was not naturally flexible.
If you’re like me then I have good news! Over time, through hard work and perseverance, I was able to achieve a level of flexibility that I had previously thought was impossible – and so can you! Read More
As the years pass by it is becoming harder and harder to imagine what life would have been like over 100 years ago when the ANZAC’s first landed in Gallipoli. There was no such thing as hashtags or selfies. No social media to share with the world what you ate for breakfast or what was going to fill your day. No internet or smartphones to keep in touch with family and friends. They didn’t even have television until the mid 1920’s. Year after year we continue to watch as the world changes at a rapid pace, but no matter how much time passes, or how different the world may become, one tradition that has and will hopefully always remain the same is ANZAC Day – A day of remembrance. A day where we stop as a nation to remember and commemorate those who have served and sacrificed for our country.
