The VIEW dance competition hits the ACT with 22 dance studios on tap.

The VIEW dance challenge will take centre stage at the ACT this week with more than 22 dance studios taking place in the four-day event.

The VIEW Dance Challenge sees competitors given the opportunity to display their talents and receive constructive criticism and thoughtful guidance from our established panel of judges, said Kristen Maurice, of the VDC.

“We see the talent and passion in every performer that takes the stage, and recognize each dancer’s dedication to the art of dance,” said Maurice. “We strive to ensure that the entire community at each competition has a unique and memorable experience with us.”

She said the staff is carefully selected, and every effort is made to secure the facility that best meets the competitors needs.

The doors open Thursday, March 26 at 3 p.m. The competition continues Friday, Saturday and Sunday, starting at 9 a.m. each day.

The final hour showdown takes place Sunday, March 29 at 4:30 p.m.
