About Helensvale Calisthenic Dance Academy

Calisthenics is a thriving artistic sport unique to Australia.

Children of all ages thrive on the variety and challenges offered in the many facets of calisthenics – a combination of controlled exercises and gymnastics, marching, singing, simplified ballet, folk and modern dance, all choreographed to music and presented on stage.

Calisthenics combines the best aspects of sport and art – it encourages physical development, coordination, self-discipline and team spirit, and develops an appreciation of music and rhythm, the beauty of line and the excitement of presenting on stage.

The Calisthenics Association of Queensland was formed in 1993 and is the peak body servicing calisthenics in Queensland, and is supported by the Australian Calisthenic Federation, the national body of calisthenics in Australia. Queensland has a State Representative Team that competes at the Australian National Championships.

Helensvale Calisthenic Dance Academy has been running since 1996 and over the years has grown to be one of Queensland’s largest clubs.

We’re located on the northern end of the Gold Coast run competitive classes for all ages and have also had girls represent Queensland in the National Championships. Our standard competitive classes run from tinies right up to seniors, plus a Cali Dance class to provide an introduction to calisthenics without the worry of competition, and a Masters class specifically for ages 26 and above.

Classes are held at the Helensvale Community Centre, Discovery Drive, Helensvale, and Helensvale State School, Lindfield Rd, Helensvale.
