News for 2017!

We’ve had our AGM and planning meeting for the 2017 event – our 35th.!!

  • Entries open on Stardom on Monday, 22nd. May and will close on Friday, 23rd. June or after all 96 hours of competition have been allocated.  Absolutely no early or late entries will be accepted, nor any changes to split sections as they are based on age of the competitor.
  • New copyright licensing impacting upon all Australian Eisteddfods have led us to increase entry fees by $1.00 per performance this year.  A further increase by the copyrighters will be absorbed without increasing our fees for 2018, but we’ll have to add another $1.00 in 2019.  Note that admission prices and other costs will remain as in 2016 for this year.
  • Lyrical, Neo-Classical and Contemporary-Under 12  For younger competitors we’ll have an Under 12 Lyrical section and age grouped Neo-Classical/Contemporary sections as in 2016.
  • Lyrical, Neo-Classical and Contemporary-Over 12  For the age groupings Over 12, we are now offering separate sections in Lyrical, Neo-Classical and Contemporary. However – due to time constraints – competitors may only enter any two of the three.  Stardom will be programmed to prevent entering all three.  *****Teachers/Competitors should be aware that dancers entering the wrong style of dance (e.g. a Contemporary in the Neo Section) in the opinion of the Adjudicator or the Committee will be penalised.
  • Change in age order across the Eisteddfod  Concerned about absenteeism of older competitors due to VCE/Senior exams in our final weekend/s, the Committee has decided to reverse the order of competition for 2017.  We will commence on the weekend of 14/15 October with our older age groupings and progress to the younger competitors by the final weekend.  The Entertainment and Scholarship sections will remain on the final night.
  • Modern Championship   Due to the need to involve Lyrical, dances to be performed in the Modern Championship are to be (i) a Modern Jazz or Musical Comedy, and (ii) a Neo-Classical, Contemporary or Lyrical.  Qualifying rule remains the same.
  • Sponsorship/Advertising  Garry would love to hear from schools/individuals wishing to sponsor the prizes for any of our sections or to have an advertisement placed in the program.  Rates elsewhere on this site.


  • Breast Cancer Network Appeal – Thanks to all who participated, or placed donations into the tin near the entry table.  We are proud to announce that we’ve donated $2,184 to the Breast Cancer Network, Australia in 2016.
