OUR MISSION

 

We take the development of our family orientated culture very seriously. You will see this with the many rituals around the gym such as “the ringing of the bell” when a gymnast achieves a new skill for the first time. 

Our vision is strong: ‘Empower the confidence and connections in families through sport.’

Our mission is to be the most people focused sporting academy in Australia’. Our team is driven and passionate about putting our AGDA Family first.  How do we aim to do this? With our Academy values in which we live and breathe every day.

AGDA VALUES

Respect for all.  Be humble, kind, smile and speak from the heart.

Open learners. Educate yourself and those around you.

Everyone belongs. Love and protect the AGDA Family.

Bring the fun. Bring your inner childlike energy and playfulness.

Dream big create BIGGER. Create the WOW!

Show me the how. Be part of the solution not the problem.

 

If you see us as being the sporting family you would like to entrust with your children, we are honoured to have your family as part of ours.

And with that we say welcome to AGDA!  We are so excited to have you join our family.

MEET OUR DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER – KAREN ECKEL

Welcome to Australasian Gymnastics and Dance Academy.  Before I introduce myself, I need to let you in on a little secret. I have a bit of an obsession, addiction even. I must also warn you that if you get to know me and the AGDA Team you too are at risk of the same fate! Yes, it’s true, I’m completely hooked on gymnastics and dance and have been since the age of 2!

I commenced gymnastics when I was 2 and then commenced dance at the age of 6. To be honest, my talents were not as a competitive gymnast. Every skill I learnt was a challenge. Yet every achievement built my confidence, ability to set goals and helped me to stay motivated. And when the going got tough, the tough got going.

Through gymnastics, I learnt many skills and lessons that have really helped shape me into the businessperson I am today.  I had to be organised for my afternoon activities, manage my time to get all my schoolwork completed, be respectful of my teammates and coaches and be thankful for the dedication and support my family gave me. The best part about participating in gymnastics was the lifelong friendships I made. 

At the age of 15, my life led me into martial arts, Jiu-Jitsu to be exact. It was in this field I was successful as a competitive athlete, achieving the title of State and National Champion in 1993 and 1994.

It’s been a rewarding journey founding Australasian Gymnastics and Dance Academy and one I’m very proud of. I’m proud of my team, our members and families. The AGDA Team of Educators truly care about each and every AGDA Member. We want to give back to the sport in educating others and allow them to receive the same benefits from my own experience.

If you have any questions about AGDA or would like more information to see if we are the right fit for your family, please reach out to us – we are here to help in any way we can.
