Who can take part in Festivals?

Competition dancers are selected from those students who study ballet, modern/contemporary and ideally tap dance. These three disciplines form an excellent technical basis from which other choreographic styles can be developed. However, all competition dancers, with their families support, need to be extremely dedicated and committed to the many hours of rehearsals and practicing that is necessary to compete at these high levels.
