We look forward to welcoming you, dancers, teachers and families at our festival in February 2022.
A NOTE FROM THE COMMITTEE ABOUT RTWDF 2022
Dear RTWDF Friends, Competitors and Teachers,
We are delighted that our festival will go ahead as planned at
The Assembly Hall Theatre in the New Year on the following dates-
Saturday 12th February - Sunday 20th February 2022
The festival will be an All England qualifying heat and our adjudicator will be Mr Geoff Lucas.
Obviously we only have a set amount of dancing hours during our 9 day festival and we want to ensure that our Festival is Covid safe so need to limit the numbers in the dressing rooms, corridors and audience.
We are expecting a large amount of entries and really want to accommodate as many of you that we can. As entries will, by necessity, be restricted for safety reasons we have increased our entry fees to accommodate coverage of the costs associated with the running of the Festival.
ENTIRES ARE NOW CLOSED. WE WILL BE IN TOUCH TO CONFIRM ENTRIES SHORTLY.
After much discussion we have decided that this year our entry system will be as follows……
We will be using a postcode radius system (postcode of the school, including that of any private entries) to accept entries, working our way out of Tunbridge Wells and surrounding areas until we are at full capacity. This seemed the fairest way of eliminating the stress previously associated with the entry system opening and closing within 45 minutes which unfortunately created a sprint scenario for teachers.
Entries will be confirmed by email. No payment will be requested or taken until you receive a confirmation email.
The syllabus will be ready to view very soon and we will keep you posted with any other information.
We thank you for your support.
The RTWDF Committee
