IDA dance studio is one of the best I have ever been involved with. IDA has such a great variety of styles of dance. Our particular favourite is Baton Twirling both my girls do it and they love it! They have gained such confidence and self esteem as well as being part of a great team. IDA supports them in every way possible. I would recommend IDA to anyone who wants to try any form of dance.

I have danced with International Dance Affair for over 20 years. I have been lucky enough to share many dancing experiences with teachers who are highly qualified and experienced. The teachers are very dedicated and treat all students equal. They have always catered for children of different ability levels and always support students in a caring and positive manner. IDA has given me the opportunity to travel all over Australia. I have made many life long friendships over the years and made memories that I will never forget- concerts, eisteddfods, dancing break ups, workshops, etc. I would highly recommend Internation Dance Affair to anyone of all ages.
