Eisteddfods are dancing festivals in which the student competes in solo and or group sections.
For solo’s, students require a weekly private lesson of half an hour or an hour for the routines required. Maximum of 2 to 3 routines for ½ hour and competing in sections only. A maximum of 4 to 5 routines for 1 hour for championships.
If you are interested in your child participating in Eisteddfod work please see us to organise a meeting with the Principals.
All students that participate in 2 ballet classes and a technical lesson a week are eligible for solo and group eisteddfod lessons.
Eisteddfods operate all through the year in the Newcastle and Sydney areas.
The principals will advise which Eisteddfods the studio will be participating in. It is then your choice as to whether your child participates or not.
It is the parents’ responsibility to enter the child into the Eisteddfod.
The teachers will advise what sections to enter and sign the form when completed. You send it to the organising committee along with the required fee before the closing date.
It is the parent’s responsibility to take the child to the Eisteddfod with all the requirements: i.e. costumes, music, props etc.
The program is issued by the Eisteddfod committee and is distributed before the opening day of the festival.
We hold no responsibility for the issuing dates of these programs.
The routine and the music are the property of Newcastle Dance Academy.
You are only paying a hire fee for the dance and music whilst your child has the routine and is a student of Newcastle Dance Academy.
You are paying tuition fees only, not for the purchase of the above mentioned.
It is your responsibility to purchase the costumes once your teacher has designed the appropriate one for each dance.
Please only resell your costumes to Newcastle Dance Academy.
No tutu’s or costumes are to be purchased from the internet.
It is expected that students practice eisteddfod dance choreography at home so that their private lesson time can be best utilised for correction and perfection.
