Choreography Competition

Choreography Competition

Our annual Choreography Competition is a fun event for students of all ages and abilities.

The competition is open to students aged 6 and above with a new demo section for dancers under 6 this year! Dancers can compete in ballet, pointe, jazz, hip-hop, tap and acrobatics as a solo, duet or part of a group. Parents can also take part for fun (and sponsorship!) in an adult category.

What do you need to do?

Firstly, you need to choose a piece of music to suit the dance style then create and rehearse your dance routine. You need to hand in an entry form to your class teacher before the event.

Music and costumes

There are no regulations on what music you use for your routine, however, it should be 'age appropriate' and there are strict time limits which are listed on the rules (below). You can wear any costume you like to suit your routine, it does not need to be elaborate. All competitors must have suitable footwear for dancing and be groomed appropriately.

The competition day

On the day, you need to register at the venue and bring a copy of your cut music on a CD or iPod. You can bring as many people as you like to watch. It is a long day, so bring refreshments! You are also allowed to take photos and video of your routine.

At the end of the day there is a presentation of prizes; every competitor receives a certificate of merit for each routine they performed, and section winners receive a gold medal. Two trophies are awarded by the judges - the "Spirit of Dance Award" to the competitor who showed the most enjoyment and sense of performance, and the "Millennium Trophy" to the best overall.

Our little demo dancers will all receive a medal and certificate, while all adult competitors will receive a certificate and we are looking forward to seeing some of the mums, dads and former students take to the stage!
