2020 Coffs Harbour and District Eisteddfod Society presents the

48th Annual Dance Eisteddfod

Our Aim is to bring out the potential of every dance student through fair and supportive competition

18/03/20  Eisteddfod Update : On behalf of the dance committee we would like to thank you for your patience and understanding at this unprecedented time of uncertainty. The committee has weighed up all the possible options and with much disappointment, we have decided to cancel our group weekend, school’s day and gala concert sections, of our dance eisteddfod for 2020. Refunds will be processed for all Dance group weekend and Dance Schools Day (less administration and PayPal fees). These will be processed within the next 7 days, through Pay Pal.

25/03/2020 Eisteddfod Update : As of midday, 23rd March 2020 the Australian Government has implemented more stringent measures to help protect our citizens.This see’s the temporary closure of all entertainment venues. As a result, The Jetty Memorial Theatre, will be closed until further notice.The committee has worked tirelessly with all contractors involved, and has been able to secure new dates, in order to give us the best possible chance, to still run our amazing event.

05/06/2020 Eisteddfod Update : It is with tremendous sadness and regret that we have taken the decision to cancel the Dance Eisteddfod for 2020. This was an agonising decision for the Eisteddfod Committee to make and there were a number of contributing factors. Primarily, with the Covid-19 pandemic situation there remains no certainty that our Eisteddfod venue will be available for our anticipated August dates, or indeed for alternate dates as late as October. Further and very importantly, the planning and running of an event of this magnitude in the current environment and the necessity to legally conform with a large range of government regulations as a result of the pandemic have meant that these challenges have been too complex to overcome. In addition we have received advice from a number of dance teachers from our local dance studios that because of the significantly lessened participation of their students over the past few months that there is a likelihood of reduced readiness and preparedness both on a physical and mental level for an August competition. As we promised at the beginning of the pandemic, we will be refunding all competitors who have paid entry fees (less fees) for the 2020 Dance Eisteddfod. The Coffs Harbour Dance Eisteddfod Committee are currently working on some other novel options for 2020 and we will advise all of you accordingly in due course.
