Sydney Dance Rhythms supporting the Edmund Rice Camps

Sydney Dance Rhythms proudly supported the Edmund Rice Camps school holiday camp program by teaching the kids and leaders some merengue and salsa moves.

“The Latin Dance class that Cristina ran for kids at our school holiday camp program was incredible. I have never seen so many smiles in one room! Cristina was so patient, supportive and helpful, and engaged every single one of our kids and leaders in the lesson. She was very understanding of the various needs of our kids, many of whom come from disadvantaged backgrounds, and helped them to feel comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend Sydney Dance Rhythms and particularly Cristina as an instructor to anyone who would like to learn to dance in a fun and supportive environment.” Hannah Rizzo – Volunteer at Edmund Rice Camps NSW

SDR called again by Arc@UNSW Student Life

"Hi Sydney Dance Rhythms!
Thank-you so much for supporting Phil' in 2018, the dance class you offered as part of our 24-hour Fun-A-Thon was a top favourite amongst our students! We loved this class so much we would love to ask you to come back to our campus to run another class! On the 30th of January we will be hosting 120 new students on campus to experience college and UNSW life. We are looking to give these students a sneak peak into all of the things Arc offers to enhance student life and we think a dance class is the perfect crossover experience of our Fun-A-Thon challenges.
Kind regards, Courtney. "
