Festival History

The objectives of the Launceston Festival of Dance inc. shall be to foster the development of dance through holding competitions, facilitating teaching, training and promoting the educational and character building value of dance to the participant.

The Festival started in 1991 with a modest 300 entries, but has now grown to entries in the thousands.

Each year we are extremely fortunate to be able to hire the Princess Theatre in Launceston, a beautiful old theatre with lots of character.   Competitors each year are able to perform to a live audience in front of fully qualified Adjudicators brought in from various parts of Australia.
