Teams & Solos

Wellington Dance & Performing Arts Academy offers age-appropriate performance opportunities for all students.  As students progress through the ballet and jazz grades, this can include learning group or solo routines for dance competitions.

Here are the steps for those interested:

  1. Talk with your teacher, Wendy and Suzanne and let them know you are interested.
  2. If we think it is the right time and fit for you, we will recommend you join an extension class.
  3. From these, we cast competition groups and offer private lessons for solos.

We have a closed facebook group for WDA families who are involved with extension class, competition groups or solos.  Information about upcoming competitions, entry forms etc will be posted there. You can also visit the Teams page for information about current teams practices dates, performances, competitions and other helpful information.

Concert

Our concert is a biennial event with our next concert this year!

The show in 2021 will take place either the weekend of 4th/5th Dec or 11th/12th Dec (waiting for venue confirmation).
