Come and be part of a Competitions Festival of 130 elite young performing artists, aged between 15 and 25 yrs from all over New Zealand as they compete at the National Young Performer Awards, hosted by Performing Arts Competitions Association of NZ (PACANZ) Palmerston North Dance Assn & Manawatu Performing Arts Competitions Society.

This years’ event is for Ballet, Tap Dance, Vocal and Piano.

This exciting weekend starts with preliminary rounds, building to the Sunday semi-finals and the spectacular Sunday night finals concert featuring 15 of the best competing for $40,000 in prize money. Tap Dance prelims and semifinals to be held at The Globe Theatre, Vocal at the Spiers Centre and all other art forms and the final concert to be held at the Regent on Broadway.

Each performer represents a PACANZ member society, and undergoes a rigorous selection process, performing to the specific required standards of their chosen art form. Like their sporting peers, it is an honour for young performing artists to be selected to participate at a national award. For some this is the pinnacle of their artistic endeavours; for others however, this will be the catalyst that launches their professional career. PACANZ is a parent organisation of 52 smaller competition societies in New Zealand.
