Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph Lifestyle -

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.
