Performances, Concerts, Eisteddfods & Competitions

Performance Groups
The school's intermediate and senior performance groups represent the studio at competitions and various functions throughout the year.  Students audition for their place in the group, however, participation in the performance groups is not necessarily restricted to the best dancers.  Students who display willingness to improve, teamwork and great dedication are also welcome to audition to be part of the groups.


Annual Concert
The studio's annual concert is usually held early December of each year and all students are encouraged to participate. This year 2010 it will be held in mid August, due to the town hall being unavailable at our usual time.  The concert is a wonderful way for students to gain performance experience, and for families and friends to celebrate their development.  There are several performances of the show and students are encouraged to perform in all if possible.

The most regular form of dance competition is the local eisteddfod.  Eisteddfods are conducted a number of times each year throughout the area and can be a wonderfully rewarding experience for students, providing valuable stage experience and exposure to their peers.  Dancers wishing to compete in eisteddfod competition (solo or otherwise) will require private or semi-private lessons to prepare.  Please speak to your teacher if you would like more information about performing in these events.  Students in the performance groups will complete in the group categories at the Inverell Eisteddfod as well as several other eisteddfods during the year.
