Choreographer Registrations | Short+Sweet Illawarra Dance 2023


Registrations are now open for choreographers to apply to enter the inaugural Short+Sweet Illawarra Dance Festival, which will launch the biggest Short+Sweet Illawarra season yet - which includes Theatre, Film, Cabaret and Voices (choral groups). 

Your dance entry can be in any dance style and can use your own troupe, we simply have one requirement - that your entry be less than ten-minutes.
The two best dance acts, as voted by our industry experts and our audience, will advance to the Short+Sweet Illawarra Gala Finals, alongside the best acts of our other performance strands.

Short+Sweet Dance is a festival of 10 minute dance pieces. We provide a platform for independent choreographers, dancers, and companies to experiment with new ideas, concepts and movement styles. Short+Sweet Dance develops emerging talent, fosters industry relations, and develops new audiences for dance.

Short+Sweet Dance caters to audiences who want to experience new dance works served to them in pint-sized presentations.


Auditions will take place on Saturday 17th June at the Bridge Street Theatre. Your dance audition piece does not need to your finished product, we will simply view this as a proposal of the piece you will be preparing to present for our festival.
