2017 FESTIVAL
Please Note: Due to the 2017 closure of the West Gippsland Arts Centre for renovations we will be moving our festival to a smaller venue and therefore will have to cap entries for next year. So please get in quick for next year 2017!!!!
The capping of entries may then continue in the following years.
We will be returning to the West Gippsland Arts Centre in 2018 and will update the website as information comes to hand.
We will contact attending schools via email of any relevant information.


The West Gippsland Dance Festival has run successfully for the past 25 years.
In that time we have grown from being a small regional festival to a highly regarded, major amateur dance competition.
Held annually at the West Gippsland Arts Centre, Warragul, the festival is conducted in September over 10 consecutive days for approximately 12 hours per day.
Our age groups range from Under 6 to 17 and over. Our sections cover classical, jazz, character, song and dance, tap, national, neo-classical/contemporary and hip hop. Dancers can compete in solos, duos / trios, improvisations, troupes as well as championship sections.

Due to our location and magnificent venue we receive entries from all over Victoria, but primarily the Melbourne metropolitan area, East, South and West Gippsland. We average 2,500 entries each year from approximately 30 dance schools.

Warragul is situated in West Gippsland, an easy one hour drive from Melbourne. A number of attractive gardens and parks are located in Warragul, with the most scenic being Civic Park featuring a large lake, rotunda, picnic shelters, playground, walking tracks and a waterfall. Overlooking the park are the local government offices and the West Gippsland Arts Centre.

Warragul has many options for accommodation including a beautiful caravan park, motels and bed & breakfast accommodation. It also caters well for dining with a range of fast food outlets, many restaurants and cafes.
