Sharp Short Dance

Sharp Short Dance, the annual dance festival presented by FORM Dance Projects, will be held online from 26 October to 21 November, showcasing the work of young dancers and choreographers from around Australia.

The festival provides an opportunity for dancers and choreographers aged 21 years and under to show their works to a panel of industry professionals and win highly sought-after industry secondments with major professional dance companies, awards and prizes. The 2020 judging panel features some of the industry’s most respected names including Omer Backley-Astrachan (Sydney Dance Company’s Pre-Professional Year Course Coordinator), Shaun Parker (Artistic Director of Shaun Parker & Company), Jo Clancy (Founder and Director of the Wagana Dancers), Emma Saunders (FORM/WE ARE HERE Company associate artist) and more. Sharp Short Dance celebrates the sheer joy of dance in all its forms – from tap, Bollywood and indigenous to hip hop, classical and contemporary.

Many participants return each year to strive for artistic excellence, develop their choreographic and performance skills, meet like-minded artists, and network with peers and industry experts.
