Troupe Eisteddfods

Troupe

We offer the exciting opportunity for select students to participate in dance competitions / eisteddfods throughout the year. Currently this is only offered to students participating in at least 2 classical classes per week and meet all requirements. 

All students dance in their age group and some students may be invited to dance in the higher age group at the discretion of Miss Joanne. 

Troupe competitions are a big commitment for families but extremely rewarding for the students. We participate in Phoenix Festival of Dance in the June School holidays and another Eisteddfod in the September holidays and every student who commits at the start of the year must be available for both. 

Our students absolutely love participating in eisteddfods, it builds resilience and dedication whilst learning to be part of a team and everyone has so much fun! The competition atmosphere is thrilling for students and we love nothing more than seeing the joy on their faces as they get to perform on stage and the laughter we experience together off stage.

Solos

Select students who are participating in troupes, meet the requirements and are ready for this next step will be invited to start solo work for the eisteddfods. This is a tremendous experience for young dancers, building their confidence and resilience as solo artists. Being able to perform alone on stage provides them with so many skills that they then transfer to other aspects of their everyday life.

Solo lessons occur during term 2 and term 3 in preparation for competitions. Due to the high-quality training provided, many of our students receive fantastic results at competitions for their solo work including many championship wins!
