As long as a child is 17 years of age at the time of registration they can participate in the program – even if they turn 18 during their membership.

 

6.       I live in Regional Queensland but would be happy to travel to Brisbane for the metropolitan activities. Can my child join the activities held in metropolitan locations?

Yes of course!  As the program is open for all young dancers state-wide, we encourage participants in regional Queensland to attend any sessions they wish and vice-versa for participants in metropolitan areas.

No, activities are non-transferable.

Registrations will be required for most activities as venues sometimes have a capped number of participants. Those who fail to register, or register too late, may be unable to attend due to capacity of venues.
