Stepping in Sequins is a Latin dance school aimed at beginners through to competition and professional level dancers. We pride ourselves in maintaining small class sizes which enables us to provide individual feedback to our students, as well as imparting proper technique and dance skills.
Stepping in Sequins was started in mid-2015 by Kelsy Luengen. Since then, the Stepping in Sequins team has performed and competed at events all around Australia, including representing at the Australian Salsa Solo Competition, Byron Latin Fiesta, , Bailando Sensual Festival, the Australian Dance Cup, and Sydney Latin Festival!
