The forms below only pertain to students who are performing solo/duets/trios at one of festivals listed below.  Forms are not for students in group dances as all registrations for those groups will be done by teacher/choreographer.

To review where your class/group will be performing, please click here.

As each festival’s registration opens, we will update this page with information to that specific competition. It will be very important for families to read and be familiar with the syllabus, rules of each festival and to discuss this with your choreographer so as to avoid any risk of disqualification.

Again this year, we are GOING GREEN and using a digital format for all competition registrations. All festival entries need to be submitted online, through the studio, so please watch for registration opening and closing dates as they will be strictly adhered to.

There are two types of festivals:

1. Open Festival

Participation in these festivals is open to all dancers.

2. Closed Festival – By Teacher Recommendation Only
Participation in these festivals (Victoria DanceWorks – Competition Section) is through teacher recommendation only. Students will need to approach BOTH of their choreographers for any given section (Ballet or Jazz or Contemporary / Modern or Tap) and ask to be recommended to do the festival. If your choreographer is not Kirkwood faculty, you will need to request approval from Carolé or Chantelle.  If you are wanting to attend multiple days, you must approach each individual choreographer to ask for recommendation and EVERY choreographer must agree to put the dancer and choreography forward. Festival registrations will not be completed without prior consent of choreographers.
