Sharp Short Dance 2023

Sharp Short Dance is a one-of-a-kind Australian youth dance festival unearthing the finest young dancers from Sydney and beyond.

The festival provides a rare opportunity for aspiring choreographers and dancers to display their talents in a supportive environment.  Dedicated to young performers 21 years and under, Sharp Short Dance encourages active participation in all genres and traditions of dance.

Over three heats entrants perform in a professional theatre setting mentored by FORM’s artistic producer. A panel of industry professionals invite the best works to participate in the final, vying for valuable industry awards and secondments.

Since 2020 dance films have become a key feature of Sharp Short Dance. Dance films are presented on FORM’s website where audiences are invited to vote for their favourite work. Films selected for the final are equally eligible for industry awards and secondments.

Awards are announced at the final.
