Our AGM and initial planning for 2020 was held on 25th. February.  Decisions made at our November, 2019 plenary meeting were endorsed, but additionally we decided upon the following……

  • Dates for 2020    October 10/11, 17/18, 24/25, 31 and November 1.  Age blocking as in previous years may be impacted upon by the holding of a Troupe Weekend (see below).  More details later.
  • Entries for 2020 will open at 9.00 am. on Friday, 1st. May and will close at 5.00 pm. on Friday, 22nd. May – or earlier if all 96 hours of competition has been allocated.  Entries will only be allowed through ‘Stardom’ and NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED!
  • Entry Fees for 2020  Regular Solos: $16.00.  Duos/Trios:  $7.50 per Competitor   Entertainment Item:  $11.00.  Championships:  $25.00   Troupes:  $35.00 per Troupe.   ‘Stardom’ Administration Fee:  $10.00
  • Troupes Weekend    We are approaching participating schools (and others) to register interest in having a dedicated Troupes Weekend on October 10/11.  This will impact upon our age-blocking and timing for Championship qualifying, but this strategy seems to have become popular with other comps, enabling more efficient planning for dance schools.  We are prepared to give this a “go”.  Additional change space may be available at Cranbourne with access to the adjacent gym.
  • Dates Change to another time of year   This was not able to be facilitated with a congested schedule of regular bookings at Cranbourne Community Theatre, which is still our preferred venue.
  • Adjudicators  Following up some names and to be advised.  Hopefully Adjudicators will be known by the time entries are open.
