Disco, Freestyle & Rock 'n' Roll

The aims of the Faculty are to create a sound and safe technique for Disco, Freestyle & Rock 'n' Roll and Country Western Dance while understanding the need to allow freedom of expression and musical interpretation and to educate teachers that dance within this Faculty is an ever-changing art form. Modern music, trends and different cultures will always give us new challenges and material to introduce to our dancers.

Celebrating 26 years, DFR Grand Finals Day 2014 took place on Sunday 12th October. To see and order photos from the event, click here.
