The Australian Dance Festival's workshop schedule runs like a "Who's Who" of the Australian Dance industry.  It's your opportunity to learn from the very best dance choreographers in Australia - all jam packed into one amazing weekend.


Workshops run on Friday, Saturday & Sunday! 

We are excited to announce that in 2021, we will have the Netball Centre on Sunday as well!
What this means for you:

  • We no longer have to divide Sunday up with Juniors in the morning, and Seniors in the afternoon! 

  • You will be able to attend an extra 3 workshops on Sunday - so that's 14 hours of workshops over 3 days!

Best of all, our prices are amazingly affordable and represent massive value for money.

Not only do you get workshops with your passes, but also seats for:

  • Australia's Best Dance Crew (Friday night & Sunday night)

  • The Dance Around The World Solo Comp (Saturday night & Sunday night)

Day Passes: From $120/ Weekend Passes:  From $220


  • Instructor profiles will be released in June/ July 2021.

  • Due to the busy schedules of the instructors, we reserve the right to change, amend or cancel workshops in the instance where instructors may cancel on us),

  •  Extra charges apply for: The Dream Dance Co Intensive (Fri), Parent Workshop with Marko Panzic (Sat), Cat Santos Intensive (Sun)

Under 14's Workshops 

  • Where a workshop is "14 & Under" this means that the Instructor has been told to cater the class to 14 & Unders AND MORE IMPORTANTLY to only choose a Dance Around The World Finalist who is 14 & Under.  You can attend this workshop if you are over 15 years old BUT YOU MUST NOT PUT YOURSELF FORWARD for the Dance Around The World Solo Competition.  We will be checking your age when we collect your music and you will be disqualified if you are not in the correct age category for the workshop.

  • Similarly, if you are 14 and under, you can attend all  the other workshops (other than Sophie Holloway's Full Time Dance School Scholarship Audition on Saturday).  BUT YOU MUST NOT PUT YOURSELF FORWARD FOR THE Dance Around The World Solo Competition unless the workshop is labelled as "14 & Under".

Tap Workshops

  • We regret that we cannot select a Dance Around The World Soloist from the Tap workshops as the Quaycentre does not allow tap on their stage due to the risk of damage to their property.

  • There are limited spaces available for the Tap workshops.  You can sign up for entry to these workshops on the Friday & Saturday of the Festival on a first come/ first served basis.  Sign up sheets will be posted at the entry door of the Hockey Room from Friday 24th September.

Full Time Dance Auditions

  • FTDSA stands for Full Time Dance School Auditions which will take place in the Hall of Legends on Sat & Sun.


See below the 2019 Workshop timetable. The 2021 timetable will be released in July/ August 2021.
