At Anna Lee School of Dance we give students who have reached a great technically and performance level with their dancing the opportunity to preform in dance competitions.

Students can have the opportunity to enter solo’s, duo’s, trios and teams.

To be Eligible to Enter Competitions:

  • A certain level of technique and artistic proficiency is required
  • As well as this, students must show a dedication to their dancing
  • They will be required to practice their dance(s) outside of lesson time
  • Regular classes must be attended
  • Full competition entry requirements will be posted early 2019

2019 ALSD Competition Teams:

We will be holding team auditions on Saturday 2nd February at our Papanui Studios.

  • All students wishing to be in a team this year will need to be taking at least one ballet class in addition to the style of team they wish to compete in (if not ballet)
  • Nadia is working of a handbook which will be available soon this will include prices, lesson times, competition dates and the ALSD terms of entering competitions
  • Please be aware that being apart of a competition team is a big commitment and weekly lessons will be required – missing lessons will greatly impact the success of the team and can cause stress and a lack of team pride for other students and teachers
