DanceSport Victoria is your organisation, your voice and your support for DanceSport here in Victoria.
We aspire towards a unified and harmonious industry, where we can all work together to enhance what truly is one of the best activities in which you can be involved, Dancesport. We continually work closely with the Victorian Government and Sport & Recreation Victoria to provide sporting and education opportunities, career paths as well as sport development options for all members of Dancesport from competitors, coaches, officials and organisations.
TRAINING AND EDUCATION
As part of our commitment to Sport and Recreation Victoria, DanceSport Victoria is currently working with existing, and hopefully soon more, organisations and individuals who provide education and training events for DanceSport Victoria’s members. We are exploring options of subsidising lectures, workshops and even lessons by inter-state and international coaches to help support our members in their own personal dancing goals.
Over the last few years, Dancesport Victoria have implemented numerous policies which are aimed at developing not only the number of registered competitors, but also the quality of our registered competitors. We have implemented a ‘Medallist Subsidy Program’ where Dancesport Victoria will pay for the first year registration to Dancesport Australia, for Open Medallist Couple winners. (see the website for further details) Our links with the Victorian Institute of Sport also provide opportunities for registered couples for further grant possibilities as well as facility use. Speak to your Executive Officer for further details.
RURAL AND REGIONAL SUPPORT
DanceSport Victoria is committed to doing what it can to support those competitors who live outside the metropolitan area of Melbourne who are actively involved in DanceSport and in particular competitions. In 2011, DanceSport Victoria introduced a Regional Youth Development Program, whereby we would provide financial assistance to those Youth competitors who travel to and from Melbourne for lessons and competitions. (see the website for further details).
DanceSport Victoria is an open and inclusive organisation that aspires to provide the best possible service to its members. The opportunities for competitors are on the increase with the recent strengthening of the relationship between DanceSport Victoria, Sport and Recreation Victoria and the Victorian Government. We look forward to the future of dancesport in Victoria and excited by the opportunities we can provide. Feel free to speak with any of our board members and/or the Executive Officer, regarding any of above information as well as other projects that are currently in development.
DanceSport Victoria is strongly committed to you, the supporters and participants of DanceSport here in Victoria.
