Here we go!

We love Term 2! Our dance floors will get a real workout over the coming term, with lots happening in classes, exams and preparation for competitions.

If your student is undertaking an exam this year, we have some advice below to help you understand what is required and how to enjoy the process.

Don’t forget we have lots of dance wear and shoes available to buy at Reception, as well as some cute new brushes and hair kits if you’re needing to top up your hair supplies.

Congratulations to our Junior Dancer Company and Young Dancers Company who competed at Wynnum Manly Eisteddfod over the weekend! It was so wonderful to finally see our students back on stage in front of an audience. They performed beautifully amongst a very high standard of competition and should be so proud of not just their performances, but also their positive attitude on the day. Huge thanks also go to all the parents who supported their dancers – we couldn’t do this without you!

If you have questions, please get in touch with us at or 0402 927 688.

See you on the dance floor!

Exams are coming

We’re thrilled to offer examinations in ballet, jazz and tap through the Southern Federation of Dance (SFD).

This year, we have students in Levels 1, 2, 3 and 5 and Pre-Elementary Ballet; Level 1 to 4 Tap and Level 7 Jazz undertaking exams. If your child is taking an exam this year, you will have received an email from us, and please rest assured that they are in good hands. We only enter students when they are ready.

Why do exams?
Exams are a great way for students to benchmark their training and feel a sense of accomplishment when they move to the next level. Students will receive a certificate which they can treasure as proof of their hard work!

What happens in an exam?
On exam day, an SFD examiner will visit Bayside Dance. Students wear their class uniform, with hair neat and tidy and clean shoes. Dancers will enter the studio in their class groups, and perform their class repertoire for the examiner.

When do we get the results?
Results will be delivered to Bayside Dance then distributed to families. We encourage dancers not to share results with each other as it’s not a competition–everyone is aiming for their own personal best. Good luck!
