Dandenong Eisteddfod of Dance Inc.
Dandenong Eisteddfod of Dance Inc.
Dates for 2015: October 10/11, 17/18, 24/25, October 31 and November 1 at Cranbourne Secondary College – Cranbourne Community Theatre, Brunt Street, Cranbourne. There is no opportunity to commence a week earlier due to Theatre bookings and the intended date of the 2015 AFL Grand Final. As in 2014, we may have to add Friday evening sessions, but – WITHOUT ADDITIONAL COMMITTEE MEMBERS WE CANNOT EXTEND TO 5 WEEKENDS!!!
Parking/Access Park in the surrounding streets – Brunt Street has ample parking. Anyone parking in the grounds of the self-defence gym across the road is risking being locked in.
Age Groupings All our solo, duo/trio section age groups, including Championships, Own Choreography and Improvisations, will remain in line for 2014. Championships, for example, will continue to be Under 12 and Over 12. Scholarship eligibility for the highest scoring solos will be for competitors 12 years and over (that is, those in the 12 and Under 14 sections and older).
Competitors’ Passes: In 2015 we will print off Passes from records within the GENI system. Competitors will be given a pass card upon their first arrival at our Comp. If you wish, you can purchase a card holder and lanyard for $3.00 at the desk. Note that a Competitors’ Pass does not entitle you to a seat during larger troupe sections when the venue is likely to fill. Those paying for admission will be given priority.
Digital Photography/DVDs: In 2015 “stagelit studios” (formerly On Spot Events) will be providing both still digital photography and DVD recordings of performers and performances. We are most grateful to them for assisting in this way. Please make note of whatever arrangements are to be made directly with them regarding orders.
Adudicators: To be advised for 2015.
Dandenong Festival of Music and Art for Youth $500.00 Scholarship: Congratulations to our 2014 winner – Laura Whitehouse from Ambitions Dancers.
PLENARY MEETING: Whilst the 2014 event is still fresh in our minds, the Committee will be meeting in the evening of Monday, 1st. December to discuss any issues which arose, revise some rules which were not clear, confirm Adjudicators and other stuff. Contact Sheila or Garry if you wish to be part of this.
THANK-YOU!! to all those (Sponsors, Parents, Teachers and Competitors) who supported us in 2014. The Committee is going to have a little rest now, then gearing up for the 33rd. “Casey Comps/Dandenong Eisteddfod of Dance” commences in February/March, 2015. New Committee members are essential to ensure this event continues.
THANKS ALSO to our Adjudicators – April, Michelle & Louise and the Secretaries Jo and Lyn. Fantastic effort!

We just go along year after year – all 31 of them, with the last 8 being in the City of Casey as “Casey Comps” – without realising we really are a significant event! 1750 entries across 4 weekends and up to 3,000 people in attendance. Taking in Berwick, Hampton Park, Lyndhurst, Cranbourne and Narre Warren, there is always a lot happening within the City of Casey. We are most grateful that our efforts were recognised with a nomination for an Australia Day Award.
