International dancing centre Hallmark

“A dance is your pulse, the beating of your heart, your breathing. This is a rhythm of your life. This is expression in time and movement, in happiness, joy, sorrow and envy”.

Jacques D’Amboise

Hallmark dancing centre - CyprusThe International Dance Centre, Hallmark, was established in 2001 and is one of the first professional clubs in Cyprus. The dance club is a member of the Cypriot Federation of Sports and Ballroom Dancing and international organisations such as the World Dance Sport Federation (WDSF) and the International Dance Organisation (IDO)

Students of Hallmark have been champions and prize winners of both Cypriot and international tournaments and championships for many years, and dancers of the club represent the country at the European and World Championships.

Groups from the All Ladies category confirm their title of Cyprus’ Champions every year.

This International Dance Centre holds first place amongst Cypriot sports dancing clubs by the number of prizes and medals.

Sports are undoubtedly very important for both good physical and mental development of a child.

Ballroom dancing (sports, or sports ballroom dancing) include two programmes, one European and one Latin American, with each programme including several dances. The first group includes a Quick Step, a Fox Trot, a Slow Waltz, a Vienna Waltz and a Tango. The second group includes a Jive, a Rumba, the Cha-Cha-Cha, a Paso Doble and a Samba.

The advantages of going in for sports dancing

The arguments in favour of dancing include:

  • positive influence on a child’s health;
  • the child become more flexible, learns to master their body and free themselves of barriers;
  • improved posture;
  • promotes self discipline;
  • teaches both girls and boys how to comport themselves;
  • dancing develops the body and the soul – children learn how to be more creative and open;
  • dancing boosts self confidence;
  • teaching ballroom dancing to children (and adults) includes participation in various competitions which means your child will learn independence and to win, and lose, with dignity.



During the first year of classes the children learn the basic moves, the main choreographic positions of arms and legs and learn to listen to a musical rhythm.

During the second year the trainer finds partners for the children and they will start participating in competitions in the Beginners category. There is an All Ladies category for those girls without a dance partner.

Groups of varying ages attend the centre, but specialists believe that the best time to begin in the most popular category, the All Ladies, is around 5 or 6 years of age.
