We’re going ahead! The committee of the West Gippsland Dance Festival is very pleased to announce that under the current restrictions, we will be able to proceed with a solos, duos and trios event for regional competitors. The Festival dates are Thursday 23rd of September to Sunday 26th of September.

The festival will be quite different to usual, and running under tight restrictions, so please ensure you carefully read all the information that we will be sending out over the coming week.
First up – we have revised our running sheet. Please check your Stardom invoice for details of split sections.
Music uploads is open NOW to check in your music at musicuploads.com.au. We will accept music until 8pm Wednesday September 22.
Our full COVID-Safe plan and program details will be available in the coming days.
Sadly, we will be unable to have any parents in the audience. We will have a full videography and photography service on site though – details to come.
There will be no dance supplies available, so please ensure you bring all your own tights and hairpins etc, and preferably spares too.
Unfortunately, we are unable to take any new entries, but we are super excited to see our competitors up on stage, doing what they love.

To our wonderful metro dance families – we’re so sorry. As you probably know, due to lockdown being extended we won’t be able to welcome you to our festival this year.
Please be patient as we process your refunds for solo, duo and trio entries.
There’s a slim chance we may be able to hold a troupe weekend in Term 4 – we’ll make further announcements when we can.
To our fabulous regional dance families – hang in there. We’re waiting for more information to see whether we can go ahead with a regional-only event.
Our volunteer committee are doing everything we can to give your beautiful dancers a chance to perform.
