Here we go again!! After a very busy and productive 2021, the Waterfront Theatre School is proud to present its highly acclaimed Choreographic Competition in May 2022.
Designed to display the very best of the college's student choreographers, the competition showcases a diverse programme of choreography across a broad range of dance styles, including Musical Theatre, Contemporary, Tap, Jazz, and Street Dance. A team of high-profile choreographers and industry professionals will adjudicate the dynamic event that takes place over four evenings.
