Eisteddfods are competitive festivals of performance which see young people between the ages of 4 and 21 come from the local surrounding area to compete against their peers. Dancers are marked by an adjudicator from the Federation of Festivals and can be awarded bronze, silver or gold medals if they are successful. Competitive solo classes are held in Ballet, Tap, Song and Dance, Modern, Greek, Lyrical, National, Character along with duet, trio and group sections.
Eisteddfods that we compete at during the academic year are:

In most cases, your son/daughter will be selected for the opportunity to participate in Eisteddfods at the discretion of the principal or relevant teacher and from there further details can be discussed.

DISCLAIMER: If a pupil decides to leave the dance school, under no circumstances must the pupil continue to use dances that have been choreographed by any teachers from Adele Stitch School of Dance, unless permission is sought from the choreographer and Principal.
Our Mini’s, Junior, Intermediate and Senior Competition Teams compete at some festivals throughout the year during the school holidays, in and around the South West of England.
Many of our students complete in many competitions have been awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in solos, duets, trio’s in many dance genres Three out of the four festivals we compete at are 'All England' qualifiers meaning that students achieving a high enough mark for their dance can go on to compete at 'All England Semi Finals' and consequently 'All England National Finals' at the Hackney Empire, London.
