Developing our dancers and coaches through Competition…
Karilee Calisthenics believes that competitions are both fun and rewarding. We compete in Team competitions and we encourage our participants to enter the Solo Competitions.
We believe that competition develops life skills that will be valuable in the future. Life skills such as working in a team, striving to be the best you can be, developing confidence and style, and learning how to win gracefully and loose with good sportsmanship.
The competition experience is introduced gradually starting in the Teenies/Tinies Age Group.
Here we encourage the children to:
- have fun
- dress up and perform for their family and friends
- learn to be part of a team
Being part of a team helps to develop spacial awareness through remembering the routine and trying to keep in time with the rhythm of the music and other team members.
As the children improve their skills with age, they are more able to master routines and understand the concept of team work in competition.
Why do we compete?
We encourage all our teams and members to:
each time they appear on stage.
Local competitions are organised by Calisthenic ACT and comprise two solo/duo competitions, and two team competitions. Each year Karilee is proud to provide an additional competition the Karilee Solo Competition for all Soloists from the ACT and interstate.
Karilee provides all age groups from Subbies and above, the opportunity to travel interstate for competition. This gives the girls an insight into high level competition and provides a wonderful bonding time for participants and parents who take advantage of this opportunity.
It is usual for Juniors, Inters and Seniors to travel to Ballarat in Victoria for the annual Royal South Street Eisteddfod held at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Subbies are assessed year by year to decide if this experience will be valuable for them as a team.
Karilee has a proud history in the local competitions with many successes throughout the different age groups. You can view our previous competition results history for the various teams.
