The Ritz Kids Brisbane compete in 3 Competitions each year between May and June. We only choose the biggest and highest standard competitions to perform in, so that our students can see the level they need to strive to, if they are contemplating a career in the Arts.
The Ritz Kids Stanthorpe compete in 2 Competitions each year between May and June and Tenterfield Eisteddfod every second year in Term 3.
ALL of our students are included and compete and perform, in group events representing our school and many also choose to compete in solo, duo and trio events. We do not "select" or "invite" chosen students to participate.
In 2018, we won several prizes across all age groups.
The Ritz has continued to feature prominently in the placings at only the highest level Competitions in South-East Queensland. Group routines are taught in class and solos, duos & trios may book private time with choreographers/teachers of their choice.
All of our age groups have age-appropriate costumes; choreography and music and we pride ourselves on presenting a very professional and classy looking team of performers.
Our Performers also do professional gigs throughout the year. For further detailed information regarding Performances, pick up a Performances Handbook from the school.
AS THE RITZ DOES NOT ENCOURAGE "STAGE PARENT" BEHAVIOUR IN ANY FORM, PARENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED BACKSTAGE AT ANY EVENTS/COMPETITIONS EVER. OUR STAFF ALWAYS LOOK AFTER OUR STUDENTS AT ALL PERFORMANCES.
