Aims of the festival

The Festival aims to showcase the outcomes of dance education in the South Coast and to encourage excellence in these programs by:

  • encouraging the development and teaching of dance programs at a school level
  • providing an opportunity for the school and wider community to recognise dance as an art form
  • providing an opportunity for students to work towards a quality performance in a professional venue
  • presenting an original, entertaining and professional event, which provides a positive and memorable experience for both teachers and students.


There are six performances and one additional closed performance. An item may be performed up to 3 times. Each of the six performances and the closed performance will be a different program.
