SHARP SHORT DANCE

Sharp Short Dance returns to unearth the finest young dancers from Sydney and beyond, after an incredible season in 2018 featuring over 50 works.

This rare opportunity allows aspiring young choreographers and performers to showcase their talents in their preferred genre of dance and strive for artistic excellence, whilst performing in a professional theatre.

Entries can be up to 5 minutes in length by choreographers and dancers aged 21 years and under. All entrants perform in a heat and a panel of industry professionals invite the best works to perform in the final where students compete for sponsored awards. Award categories include Most Innovative Choreography, Most Outstanding Male and Female Dancer and the Audience Choice Award. Finalists are also eligible for valuable industry secondment opportunities with leading dance companies.
