We at The Perth School of Ballet encourage students to participate in competitions throughout the year. Competitions are a great way to be part of the larger dance community. Students have the opportunity to dance on stage and perform for an audience which is not only a great experience but also a big part of the art of dance. They help dancers gauge where they’re at with respect to dancers from other schools. Competitions also build resilience as students must face disappointments while learning to be graceful in their losses. They are a learning experience that helps build character.
Many of our students experience success at the competitions we enter. We feel however that, more important than placings, is whether or not our students have done their best regardless the circumstances. We also value how supportive they are of their fellow competitors.
To participate in competitions students must do regular privates and dedicate themselves to perfecting their solo, duo or trio.
