Skills take centre stage at contest
More than 1500 dancers will showcase their talents at this year’s 11-day Kwinana Dance Festival.
Now in its 27th year, the festival gives dancers the chance to showcase their skills in a variety of dance forms, including classical, jazz, tap, acro, hip-hop, lyrical, contemporary and modern.
The Koorliny Arts Centre festival has attracted entrants from 29 dance schools, with solo, duo/trio and group acts on the bill.
Centre manager Kate McIntosh said this year’s festival would continue the tradition of 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 trophies awarded at a winners’ concert on October 4.
The festival started on September 23 and runs until October 4.
