More than 1500 dancers converged on Maitland Town Hall over the past week for the inaugural Ritz and Glitz Dance Challenge Summer Series.
Dancers and singers aged as young as three came from as far as Brisbane and Kiama for the event, which ended on Sunday after five days of competition.
Competition organiser Pam Cramp was thrilled with the turnout.
“We didn’t know how it would run in January, being school holidays and whatnot, but we’ve had so many positive comments from people telling us they’ll be back for next year,” she said. “We couldn’t be happier.”
Attention will now turn to the annual Ritz and Glitz Dance Challenge, which will begin on April 5 for groups and April 11 for solos.
