An ACTION PACKED WEEKEND OF DANCE and this is when our entire dance community

comes together, in what is truly the highlight in our MID-YEAR curriculum calendar.

For current students only into cārnivalé CHDES teams 

This module is part of our extension program for current students and is not part of your child's normal syllabus core skills training

this experience provides the opportunity for each student to  rehearse routines in class and together during specially designed performance workshops

and perform on a professional stage at Coffs Harbour University with their teams.

Our school's entries into this eisteddfod are based on the number of participants and students are chosen for teams will be based on age,

styles of dance they do, previous and current enrolment; and unlike our other eisteddfods just our SHOWBiZ KiDZ participate in,

we open this eisteddfod entry to our entire student body as it is held in our hometown.


Over the preparation month before the eisteddfod students will come together to rehearse and then perform at the dance eisteddfod

(Weekend workshops 13th/14th May, 20th/21st May and 27th/28th May and the performance inclusive dates are 10th-12th June)

There is a cost involved for four rehearsal/performance weekend workshop sessions at $20 per weekend

(we will rehearse Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning)

and there is $30 costume flat rate hire fee for each dance entered

Depending on the age division and dance style your child is chosen to be in, will depend on which day or days your child will perform

the CHDES Group Eisteddfod is held over the three days of the long weekend

(as soon as the program is released we can confirm your day/s and give an estimate of time of performance)


CHDES Groups Saturday 10th - Monday 12th June


(CHDES production block is from Saturday 13th May - Monday 12th June 2023)

As you can imagine a LOT of preparation goes into events such as these AND CHDES Dance entries close soon

so we can prepare our teams entering the eisteddfod over the Autumn holidays
