Sandy Carrington

I became part of this amazing organization in 1996 when I joined as a franchisee and opened the Ipswich studio. Dance lessons were often an expensive hobby and one I was lucky enough to grow up with but I was inspired by the affordability and all inclusiveness of the FAD program allowing everyone the opportunity to ‘Feel the Excitement of Dance’.

My passion to spread the word about FAD saw me expand taking over the Toowoomba studios and later the Springfield, Redbank, Morayfield and Caboolture locations and opening the Chermside, Albany Creek, Murrumba Downs, Narangba, Caloundra and Kawana studios. Since then I have been blessed to have been part of many students life journeys watching them grow in the self confidence that dance and performing brings.

My career in dance spans 31 years performing, competing, instructing, judging and completing examinations in many forms of dance including Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Ethnic, Gaelic and Acrobatics. I have been a FAD Instructor for 18 years, hold IASF Cheer Leading Coach accreditation and a Graduate Certificate in Franchising. I regularly judge at several cheer and dance events.

In 2008 I took over the role of Managing Director following the retirement of our Founder, Sharin Caine who devoted much of her life to developing this fantastic program. My goal is to continue to grow and develop FAD’s programs continuing the excellence of the past 32 years and leading with quality programs that inspire our young members. Our primary goal is encouraging kids to GET ACTIVE in a positive and fun environment, allowing everyone to share in

“Feeling the Excitement of Cheer and Dance”.

Our FAD Franchisees are an amazing group of people, completely devoted to providing the best life experience to each and every student and are genuinely committed to providing quality instruction helping everyone achieve their very best. FAD has been an amazing life experience for me and I hope it will be for you too!


Yours Sincerely
