Who can do them?
What is a solo?
A solo performance is an arrangement to music timed between 2 to 3.5 minutes (depending on age) where the girls display 50% dance and 50% physical movement (free arm). Girls compete in their own age group in the section of Novice and Open which is dependent on state team representation and previous success in the Novice section.
What is a duo?
A duo performance is an arrangement to music timed between 2 to 3.5 minutes (depending on age) where the girls display 50% dance and 50% physical movement (free arm). Girls can partner with someone from their own age group or one year level below or above. It is highly recommended that the partners display similar qualities and have the ability to work together as a team. Girls compete in the age group of the oldest girl in the section of Novice and Open which is dependent on state team representation and previous success in the Novice section.
When is it?
The CAWA State Solo and Duo competition is held in late October/early November. Girls compete in age groups on one day, except for if the duo consists of different age groups. Dates and times not available until after the draw in mid-October. Applecross Calisthenics Club also hosts an ACC Solo Eisteddfod in early October.
What costs are involved?
How do I get started?
If your daughter is keen and you have already organised a coach then you are all set. Please do not assume that the coach you had last year is able to coach, always best to double check as some circumstances may have changed.
If you have not organised a coach please email Hayley or Fiona at firstname.lastname@example.org, who will assist you in finding a coach. The deadline for finding a coach will be emailed each year.
What is expected of you?
It is expected that your daughter sets aside time at home to practice set routines and meets with their duo partner at least once in between set training times with their coach. The preparation for this competition is limited so girls need to take on responsibility for learning their items. Videoing a training session is a great option once the routine has been finished.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to approach your daughter’s coach or email Hayley or Fiona at email@example.com
