Our Story

The idea of establishing a Line Dance Association in Queensland has been kicking around for a long time now. Line dancers have an instant bond with each other, a common denominator. We all share the fun, fitness and friendship that line dancing brings to our lives. Queensland line dancers need updated information on where we can dance and what is on so we can co-ordinate our calendars .

The Steering Committee have worked hard to make QLDA a reality and would like to thank everyone who has helped by coming on board with membership. QLDA is now firmly established and will continue into the future with the support of line dancers across Queensland.

Our Approach

QLDA has a vision of uniting Queensland line dancers by bringing the distance between the northern tip to the border and the outback to the beach a little closer and more accessible. QLDA's aim is to promote and support all line dancing activities within our beautiful state. With this website, Queenslanders can see what, where, when & who is holding an event. With our monthly Newsletters QLDA will share members' stories, popular dances, split floors and advertise upcoming events.

Our Future

A few goals that we would like to see to fruition in the future: QLDA Line Dance Gala, QLDA Line Dance Competition, discounted insurances, licences and accommodation. In the future,  we would like to see a dance register introduced, so if you are visiting a class you are more than likely to know some of the dances taught.

I would call line dancing my lifeline. There is no better feeling than being able to express yourself on the dance floor. It is very healing. I have made so many friends through our mutual love of line dancing.

I can’t imagine my life without Line Dancing. Life’s Short…. Dance Hard!
