Events


At Southern Federation of Dance, you'll find a variety of annual events.

CONVENTION

SFD holds an bi-annual convention which runs over a week during January. These classes are run by Examiners and SFD encourages all teachers to attend for the benefit of their students. Members are able to ask questions openly about any aspect of the syllabus work and can receive feedback regarding common faults seen in examinations and how each step should be executed correctly.


EXAMINATIONS

Members may enter students for examinations in any syllabus styles and levels. For Members' convenience they are able to select the date for examinations, which can take place at any time throughout the year from February to November. The venue for examinations can also be nominated by Members which is often at their own studio.

SPECIAL EXAM DAY INFORMATION

STUDENT MASTERCLASSES

 Jazz Tap Classical Ballet

Masterclasses are held annually. SFD encourages students to attend if they are training to undertake an exam. The emphasis is on style and corrections from the Examiners, rather than the teaching of steps. Teachers are also able to view the Masterclasses.
