COMPETITION WORK

Students from Grade 1 level and upwards are able to participate in competition solos/duos/trios, if selected by the teacher as being ready for competition work.

To be eligible to participate in competition work, students must also be enrolled to sit their exam,  & enrolled in conditioning (grade 2 ballet & upwards only). Students will not be considered for competition work unless they are also ballet exam students.

Students will need to attend 2 extra private lessons to learn their solo/duo/trio and a weekly private lesson to be able to participate in competition work (private comp lesson times will be available once entires have been received). 1-3 solos can be rehearsed in a 20 min private lesson. 4+ solos will require 2 private lesson slots weekly. Duo/trios will share a private lesson slot.

 

Dance styles to choose from for competition work are: classical, contemporary, lyrical, neo-classical, demi-character. Teachers will ultimately decide what style best suits a student, however we do let students indicate which style their preference may be. 

 

Level 3 contemporary classes and upwards may also be offered opportunities to compete with troupes at competitions. These practices are done in class time so rarely occur any extra rehearsal time.

  • We generally have a pre-competition showing in May at our Denning Rd studio where students can have a "dress-rehearsal" with an audience prior to comp season getting underway

The fee structure for competitions in 2024 can be viewed under "CLASS FEES". Please note that there are fees to participate in each competition which will be invoiced prior to each competition.

**A PRE-REQUISITE FOR COMPETITIONS IN 2024 IS THAT STUDENTS MUST BE ABLE TO DO RIGHT/LEFT AND CENTRE SPLITS FULLY. SPLIT PHOTOS MUST BE EMAILED TO: studioccdance@gmail.com 

NO COMPETITION WORK WILL BE COMMENCED UNTIL THESE PHOTOS ARE RECEIVED

*Photos need to be in by the 18th of February.

An example of how participating in comps would look like with 1 solo:

  • 2x 1 hour private lessons to learn the solo, sessions scheduled by the teacher

  • Attend a weekly 20 min private lesson at the same time each week (missed lessons will not be refunded). Competition lessons run for terms 1 and 2 only.

  • Organise a costume, teachers can provide some direction with this - please do not make any purchases without checking that it is suitable first
