WAKAKIRRI LIVE SHOWS

Dates are rescheduled to Term 4.  For latest news on Wakakirri and Covid-19 please click here

  • Dates advertised below are not confirmed and can change or be canceled pending sufficient number of schools participating in that region.
  • Shows will be a modified version of Wakakirri with reduced audiences designed to comply with social distancing guidelines. Providing a safe environment for your students remains our highest priority.
  • Due to the ever changing situation surrounding coronavirus,
    • Schools will be sent an email on June 22 confirming the status of the live event. 
    • No action is required from Wakakirri schools until June 22.
    • Commitment to participate will only be required once we confirm that shows can proceed and your school is able to attend.
  • Wakakirri will take place approximately 9am to early evening each day (there will be NO traditional evening show starting at 7pm)
  • Each school will get to two rehearsals then immediately perform their Story-Dance for the judges.
  • All shows are a mix of Primary and Secondary Challenge, expect in Victoria where shows will also include the Dance Challenge 
  • It is our aim to have an audience to watch each rehearsal and performance.   Here are the 3 possible scenarios;
    • The audience is made up of other schools performing that day plus parents and friends spaced out to comply with social distancing measures
    • The audience is made up only of other schools performing in Wakakirri that day spaced apart to comply with social distancing restrictions
    • There is no audience, only judges because of social distancing restrictions
  • Show results will be announced via email and a national TV special will announce the Story of The Year
