Dance Competition, and Pre-Pointe, oh my!

Follow Your Dreams Dance Competition

In 2020, we are doing something no other Canberra dance studio has yet done - enter an adult troupe in a regional dance competition!  We have a place at the Canberra regional of Follow Your Dreams Dance Competition (FYD) for a contemporary troupe and we want YOU to dance with us.

Interested, but put off by the word 'competition'?  Don't be.  This is a performance opportunity; it is simply another chance to dance on stage and seize an opportunity you may thought had passed you by.  And you will do so with a community that will lift you up and support you throughout the journey.  We have chosen FYD precisely for its reputation for being adult-friendly, supportive and professional - as Chantal, our resident 2019 FYD Masters National Champion will gladly tell you.

Our FYD Contemporary Team is open to everyBODY with at least elementary level movement experience of any style.  You will work with Grace (the brains behind Studio to Screen) to create a contemporary dance piece you will be proud to present on competition day.  Please note, you must be a registered 6P student to participate.

FYD will take place on the weekend of 13 - 14 June; venue is TBA and performance date / time will be allotted closer to competition day. Rehearsal schedule is as follows:

  • intensive workshops on Wednesdays, 15 and 22 April, 1915 - 2115
  • weekly rehearsals on Mondays, 27 April -  8 June, 2000 - 2100.

Enrolment cost is $350, and will be invoiced directly to the student.  Your enrolment covers all rehearsals and is inclusive of your entry fee, which covers door entry for your family and friends (another reason we chose FYD - there is no additional cost to your loved ones to cheer you on!).  We will work with you to keep costume fees reasonable and affordable.

To register for our inaugural FYD Contemporary Team, please email by no later than Wednesday, 8 April 2020.  We look forward to rocking the stage with you!

Our next Pre-Pointe Assessment for Term 2 intake will take place on Thursday, 16 April 2020, 1915 - 2015.  Please note, you must be a registered 6P student to participate.  In considering your commitment to Pre-Pointe, please take the time to read our Pre-Pointe / Pointe Policy and discuss your readiness with one of your regular 6P ballet teachers.

To register for our Term 2 Pre-Pointe Assessment, please email by no later than Wednesday, 8 April 2020.  There is homework to help you prepare for the assessment - the sooner you register, the more time you have to prepare!
