Competitions that Charlesworth Walsh Dance Studios will be involved in this year are:
CLAP Eisteddfod will be held at Carwatha Theatre, Carwatha Secondary College on Browns Road, Noble Park.
Note- CLAP Eisteddfod will not be running in 2017
Southern Dance Festival will be held in the September/October school holidays and will also be held at the Carwatha Theatre. More information can be found here.
In 2017 all troupe competitions for all age groups will be held during the first week of the September/October school holidays (beginning Saturday 23rd of September). Solos and duos will go over both weeks.
Competitions are not compulsory but friendly and fun competitions are encouraged. They give selected troupes from 8 years and up a chance to perform on the stage, work as a team and provide the experience of working before a large audience in group or individual performances. The experience of performing under pressure transfers to other life experiences such as school examinations and job interviews.
Cabarets are held to give the more advanced and senior students the opportunity to present their theatrical and cabaret in a professional venue with a live band and audience. The cabarets are just like the supper clubs where the audience has a meal, entertainment and socialising.
Showcases allow students to show off their performance to members of the general public as well as their family and friends.
