The West Gippsland Dance Festival has run successfully since its inception in 1991 attracting competitors from around Gippsland and the Metropolitan area. Since 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. 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 2,100 entries each year from approximately 30 dance schools (see list of participating schools). The benefits to our business community are enormous as we bring a large volume of visitors into Warragul for the duration of the festival. The festival was honored as the Baw Baw Shire’s “Community Event of the Year 1999” in recognition of our contribution to the community.
