Kwinana Courier - - Front Page -

DANCE schools have stepped up for the 11-day Kwinana Dance Fes­ti­val, which takes place at the Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre from Septem­ber 23 to Oc­to­ber 4.

Now in its 27th year, the fes­ti­val gives dancers young and old the chance to show­case their skills in a va­ri­ety of dance forms in­clud­ing clas­si­cal, jazz, tap, acro, hip-hop, lyri­cal, con­tem­po­rary and mod­ern.

The fes­ti­val has at­tracted en­trants from 29 dance schools, with more than 1700 per­for­mances com­pris­ing solo, duo/trio and group acts round­ing out the event.

The fes­ti­val is ad­ju­di­cated by Fiona Scott.

Cen­tre man­ager Kate McIntosh said this year’s fes­ti­val was con­tin­u­ing in its rep­u­ta­tion as a friendly com­pe­ti­tion.

“I hope that all in­volved en­joy the spirit of the fes­ti­val and see it not only as a com­pe­ti­tion, but as a chance to learn from a va­ri­ety of peo­ple,” she said.

Win­ners are an­nounced at the end of each item, with per­pet­ual tro­phies awarded at a win­ners’ con­cert on Oc­to­ber 4.

Koor­liny Arts Cen­tre is on Sul­phur Road in Parmelia.
