About Us


Our Story

Formation is a close-knit dance community located in Acacia Ridge on Brisbane's south side.  2023 is our 6th year & we have gone from strength to strength, winning grand champions at regional, state & national-level competitions in Jazz, Lyrical & Pom.  In 2021 we were awarded a bid to compete at the IASF World Championship in Orlando Florida.

At Formation, our main goal is to create happy dancers that felt like they were being built up & never knocked down.  We always put our dancers first & work hard to foster a love of dance in anyone who walks through our doors.

Our classes are All Star-style, which makes for dynamic routines, that are fun & challenging for dancers.  Teams compete at several competitions during the year, along with various community events & an end of year concert.

We are so excited to present our 2023 information to you - feel free to contact us if you have any questions

What is All Star Dance?

All Star dance is a competition sport that involves females and/or males performing a 2 minute and 15 second routine in the styles of jazz, hip-hop, pom and lyrical/contemporary. These routines incorporate dance technique, synchronisation 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.  Teams typically consist of 5 or more dancers and range from tiny 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, synchronisation 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.
