Simultaneously, Sam and Teagan started training in dance at the 'Debra McCulloch Dance Academy.' Initially, Sam pursued dance as a hobby. However, once she started participating in various dance competitions, she became passionate about the art.

Their participation in the show boosted their worldwide fame. Prior to this, Sam and Teagan had auditioned for 'Australia’s Got Talent' when they were in high school.
The Rybka sisters began offering dance and drama training sessions even before they could finish their university course. In 2015, Sam and Teagan received an offer from the 'YouTube' channel 'Squared,' owned by twins Brooklyn and Bailey, to share their sessions through the channel.
