Registrations are now open for FORM Dance Projects’ beloved dance festival, Sharp Short Dance.  Providing a rare opportunity for aspiring choreographers and dancers to display their talents in a  supportive environment, Sharp Short Dance is returning to the stage, both live and digitally, in 2021. 

Sharp Short Dance will see more than fifty dance works created and performed by young dancers  and choreographers 21 years and under. Works will either be presented as a dance film to be  featured on FORM Dance Projects’ website during the festival, or as a live work to be performed at Riverside Theatres, Parramatta in October. 

For the first time, applicants residing in the Central West NSW region will be able to present their  work in the regional heat at Cowra Civic Centre on Sunday 17th October. 

With an array of prizes and valuable industry secondment opportunities with leading dance  companies, the competition aims to support young performers as they strive for their own artistic  excellence.
