All Star Dance Teams are groups of athletes from different clubs who come together in competition to achieve greatness!


All Star dance is a competition sport that involves females and/or males performing a 2 minute and 30 second routine in the styles of jazz, hip-hop, pom and lyrical/contemporary. These routines incorporate dance technique, synchronization and uniformity, staging and visuals, communication and crowd appeal. The routines are performed and scored against other competitive teams at various local, regional, national, and worldwide competitions.


All Star dance athletes are not only trained to get their bodies to peak physical fitness and to execute impeccable dance technique, but also learn the important “life lesson’s” of respect, dedication, self-confidence, sportsmanship, commitment and most importantly teamwork.


All Star dance teams typically consist of 4 or more dancers and range from mini to open age. Most of these well-rounded athletes are capable of performing all styles of dance within the competitive sport.


At competitions, the teams are divided by age and ability. The routines are judged based on execution of proper form, alignment, strength, control and technique, synchronization and uniformity, seamless and clean/clear spacing and transitions, creative and appropriate choreography, difficulty, communication and crowd appeal. Each judging panel is comprised of industry trained and experienced professionals who are not only from the Australian All Star Cheerleading Federation but also many of the judges sit on World Dance Panels.


Competitions are the focus point where all the teams’ hard work is put to the test.
