Fast + Fresh Dance Final Winners

Best New Talent and Audience Choice Award Josh O’Grady with Tayla Campbell

Fast + Fresh Dance was a huge success this year. Over 100 young and aspiring choreographers and dancers battled it out over 2 heats to perform in the final, on Saturday night at Riverside Theatres. Each year the bar is lifted regarding the quality of the applicants and their performances. The judges had a difficult time selecting the 13 performances to showcase their work in the final. The judges were particularly looking for innovative and original choreography.

All of the performers who made it to the heats and the final deserve recognition for their works and performances. FORM Dance Projects is proud to support this event, not only to provide a unique performance opportunity for these young talented choreographers and dancers but also to mentor and support this next generation or performers.
