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
