Choreographic Competition 2024

Wed May 8, 19:30 - Sun May 12, 18:00

The Lane Theatre, Waterfront Theatre School


PERFORM | TEACH | CREATE – the three pillars that define our training at WTS.  And in the words of Maya Angelou: "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."

At WTS we believe in empowering our students with the tools to create their own work.  Our belief has always been that if you can create your own work, you will never be out of work, which is why our Festival of Creativity is such a vital component of our annual calendar in May 2024.

Our Choreographic Competition, which forms part of this festival, provides our students with the opportunity to develop their unique skills as creative entrepreneurs

Designed to display the very best of the college's student choreographers, the competition showcases a diverse programme of choreography across a broad range of dance styles, including Musical Theatre, Contemporary, Tap, Jazz and Street Dance. 

And this year YOU can also be the judge. Apart from the wide range of awards adjudicated by a team of high-profile choreographers and industry professionals, we have added the People's Choice Award, which will allow you, the audience, to vote for your favourite routine.

Other award categories include Best Choreographer of a Solo, Trio/Quartet and Group in each genre; Best Novice Choreographer, Best Choreographer, Most Outstanding Male Dancer, Most Outstanding Female Dancer, Outstanding Overall Performance, and the Full House Award that considers full production elements i.e., Music, Casting, Choreography, Costume, and Staging.

Some of our past winners featured London-based Thalia Burt who made her West End Debut at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, was the Resident Choreographer and Director for the musical Cats and the Associate Choreographer for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat; Rushney Ferguson, a Fleur Du Cap Nominated Actress for her performance in David Kramer’s production, Langarm and Sonwabiso Sakuba, who toured in the international production of The Lion King in Spain and founded the Sonwa Sakuba Institute for the Performing Arts in East London.

Come and support our creatives of the future from 8-12 May at the Lane Theatre and celebrate the next generation of choreographers.
