We at the Newcastle Dance Awards believe that there are many more to come. With over 170 dance schools in Newcastle, Central Coast and the Hunter Valley area that train all genres of dance we are creating a community support team for the dance world here in our home town, it is both important and necessary that we as a community support the youth of today to strive for excellence and know that their hard work and dedication can be rewarded.
There are 1000’s of families in Newcastle, Central Coast and the Hunter Region that are able to support their children and enable them to be trained by the wonderful dance professionals, so we want to support the studios and their students. Please help us help the children with their passion for dance.
