SHARP SHORT DANCE 2018
Aspiring Dancers and Choreographers Aged 21 or Under
Sharp Short Dance cultivates talent and performance by choreographers and dancers 21 and under, and presents short, new and innovative dance works by the dance industry’s upcoming talent.
Since the launch of this event 10 years ago, FORM Dance Projects has facilitated the participation of over 1,000 young dancers in this festival, many returning each year, to strive for artistic excellence, develop their choreographic and performance skills, meet like-minded young artists, and network with peer and industry professionals.
Unlike other performance environments such as eisteddfods and local festivals, Sharp Short Dance encourages young people to take control of their creative visions under the guidance and mentorship of professionals.
The festival inspires and educates young performers to strive for their own artistic excellence and encourages active participation in dance at all levels and styles including contemporary dance, ballet, lyrical, jazz, tap, cultural, hip hop and street dance.
Over the season, more than fifty dance works will be created and performed by young dancers and choreographers. Works must be 5 minutes or less and winning performances are eligible for awards such as Most Innovative Choreography, Most Outstanding Male and Female Dancer, Outstanding Solo, Duet and Ensemble Performance and the Audience Choice Award.
The heat winners will present their works as part of the Gala Final where great industry prizes can be won including valuable secondments with leading dance companies such as Sydney Dance Company Pre-Professional Year and Stalker Theatre.
