2020 sure has thrown some curve balls for our ballet dancers, so for a competition studio like EBA, not being able to participate in competitions throughout the year has definitely been a challenge. Due to this, we were so excited to be able to finally hit the stage for our first comp of 2020 last weekend, Follow Your Dreams.

With the competition organisers being stuck interstate, all the local studio owners volunteered to do all the behind the scenes jobs to get the event up and running. So seeing our students up there performing and doing what they do best was a common goal for all of us, and I am so thankful for getting to work alongside these ladies over the weekend.

At Follow Your Dreams, our dancers perform their routines (solo, duo, trio or groups) in front of a judge as well as a live audience. As the dancers are performing, the judge records a voice memo giving live feedback as the dancer is on stage. This is then recorded and the dancer receives it at the end so knows what the judge thought of their performance. It is a wonderful tool for our dancers to use to improve their routines, and have feedback as to why they did or didn’t place. 


EBA was so lucky to have so many wonderful results at this competition, and a special shout out to those dancers who performed at a competition for the first time – Tess, Ruby, Acacia, Isabella, Avalea, Charlotte, Alexis and Lucy. When we see potential in a student we approach both the dancer and the parent with the opportunity to join our competition team, so thank you for taking the plunge and saying yes! We hope you had a wonderful first experience and that this is the first of many comps you will perform in.

Now to share with you our fantastic photos and results!
