What we offer
A form of theatrical performance that combines songs, spoken dialogues, acting and dance.
Contemporary & Ballet
Contemporary dance is versatile and pushes the boundaries of the body's natural movement. Students will tell stories through expressive movement while incorporating elements of classical ballet and modern jazz.
Ballet is a graceful form of dance that is fundamental to all styles of dance. The techniques taught remain important to build students strength and correct body placement. KDF follows the Royal Academy of Dance
Jazz & Pom
Is energetic and fun, consisting of unique moves, fancy footwork, big leaps and quick turns
Join the KDF family today!
All students will be placed into a team. We believe it is best to perform what is best for the athlete in a safe manner. Athletes will not be placed in an older/non-novice/level 2+ divisions if coaches feel as though the athlete lacks skills and maturity. We want our athletes to reach their full potential and execute skills with perfect form.
Watching Training Sessions
At KDF, we believe it is important to keep parents involved and informed with our classes and athlete progress. We hold open sessions once a term where we invite parents and siblings can see what happens in a normal lesson. Parents, siblings and friends are not permitted to watch lessons unless invited by the coach.
Let us help your child reach their full potential!

Do I need to notify KDF admin if my child no longer wants to attend classes?
Yes. This is very important as we will continue to bill you if you do not communicate this with us. Please keep in mind that young children occasionally do not want to come to class as a result of feeling tired, sick or just not in the mood on that particular day. This is completely normal behaviour for this age group. Experience has shown that in majority of cases, it is simply a phase that the child will quickly pass through. Our staff at KDF are well equipped to comfort even the most unsettled child.
Are the coaches qualified?
All KDF coaches have the following:
What should I expect from my 4 year old child on the first lesson?
Who knows! Our staff have been coaching little ones for many years!!! Our experience shows that new athletes surprise their own parents! Remember that you have just brought them to a brand new environment, there are new sounds, new people, new outfits and we can’t expect them to just jump on into the class and follow their coaches’ instructions right away. They haven’t even been introduced to the formalities of big school yet. We need to stress to parents that it is normal for your child to be shy and not want to participate on the first couple of lessons despite how loud and confident they are home. Sometimes it might mean they watch a few lessons before joining into the group. We might think they aren’t doing anything by watching, but they are thinking, processing it all analysing the activities. Or they could just walk straight in and be ready to learn. As we said “who knows!” We take those baby steps with you to help develop your child’s confidence and social skills.
Is there an end of year concert?
At KDF, we host an End of Year Showcase. This is where all of our athletes get to perform their routines and skills to their friends and family in a professional setting. All athletes will receive a medal for participation, and trophies are awarded to exemplar athletes from each group. Costumes in previous years have varied from $60 - $90 each.
How do I pay?
Upon acceptance of enrolment, an invoice will be generated. Fees can be paid in cash or EFT. Our account details are located at the bottom of your account statement. Unfortunately, we do not accept cheques.
How do I enroll?
Do missed lessons still need to be paid?
Yes, fees are paid upfront, by the term and non-refundable. Administration staff must be notified via email 4 weeks in advanced if a child will no longer be attending classes. Otherwise, parents will continue to be billed.
Can I watch my child’s classes?
Parents with children in the 4 years of age classes may stay with their child’s classes, however we recommend leaving your child on their own after a couple of weeks once they have settled in. At KDF, we believe it is important to keep parents involved and informed with our classes and athlete progress. Parents, siblings and friends are not permitted to watch lessons unless invited by the coach. However, we hold open sessions once a term where we invite parents and siblings to see what happens in a normal lesson.
Are there going to be Acrobatic exams in 2020?
Kinetic Dance Force implements the Acrobatics Arts syllabus into the lessons. All Acro students will have the option to sit Acrobatic Arts exams in 2020. These exams are held at the church hall and adjudicated by Acrobatics Arts examiners from Canada. It is recommended that students sit the exam to give the students something to focus on and the opportunity to have their skills graded.
Are there going to be Ballet exams in 2020?
Students who have been studying ballet in 2019 will have to opportunity to sit their Royal Academy of Dance exams in May/June 2020.
What acro/tumbling level is suitable for my child?
Beginner - Athletes are working towards perfecting skills such as forward rolls, cartwheels and primary walkover progressions. Athletes are learning to build core and shoulder strength as well as back, hamstring and shoulder flexibility.
Intermediate - Athletes are working towards perfecting skills such as walkovers, round offs and aerial progressions. Athletes are building core and shoulder strength as well as increasing their back, hamstring and shoulder flexibility.
Advanced – Athletes are working towards perfecting walkover variations, aerials and learning foundation back handspring progressions
Athletes are working towards perfecting skills such as handsprings, back tucks and primary layout progressions. Athletes are maintaining their core and shoulder strength as well as exploring contortion skills.
Will teams be competing at AASCF Nationals in 2020?
Kinetic Dance Force will be introducing their own qualifying scores that will need to be reached in order for teams to be entered into AASCF nationals. These scores must be achieved at any one of the NSW competitions. Once that score has been reached, it is assumed that that team is entering into AASCF Nationals in 2020.
Why do recreational classes compete?
The coaches of Kinetic Dance Force will be providing the opportunity for our recreational athletes to compete in 2020! We wish them to experience the thrill of the competing and give them the chance to understand what it is like. These recreational classes will be competing at Spring Carnival held in October. We believe that Spring Carnival is the best competition for them as it is the most relaxed and fun out of them all!
I’ve heard about a class from another student, but it is not listed on my child’s timetable. Why?
Timetables are designed to list the classes that are age appropriate for your child. If a class is not listed it is because your child is out of the age bracket. Athletes will not be placed into an older/non-novice/level 2 division if coaches feel as though the athlete lacks skill and maturity. We want our athletes to reach their full potential and execute skills with perfect form.
