The Season of Ignite! is back and bigger than ever to showcase a diverse selection of new dances created and performed by variety of youth from local secondary schools, studios and dance schools.

Contemporary, ballet, hip hop, jazz and fusion dance capture the vibrancy and energy of these very talented bright young things.  

This year we are raising the stakes!  Tempo has invited a panel of guest judges to give out Tempo Youth Dance Awards in a range of categories like choreography, performance and innovation. There’s also a People’s Choice Award voted by the audience so be sure to get your mates along to support your favourite school or group.

PLEASE NOTE // There will be a prizegiving following the 7.30 show, also screening in Q's Barfoot & Thompson Lounge for audiences of the 4.30 show.

abundance of talent, enthusiasm, collaboration and original choreography
