CoastQuest Championships is held on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW where an abundance of talented dancers and singers compete in a positive, professional and uplifting environment! CoastQuest now has both a Summer and Winter Series for competitors to enjoy and master their stagecraft skills.
This much-loved event was created in 2005 by Chris & Dave Duncan with a focus on bringing excellence to the Coast in the form of an ethically run competition with industry relevant adjudications from top working professionals! Chris has had a lifelong obsession with dance and the performing arts with a career spanning over 30 years as a teacher, choreographer, agent, and now as Managing Director of the nationwide publication – DanceLife Australia – and national dance competition – DanceLife Unite. With her vast knowledge, experience and contacts, Chris is passionate about ‘giving back’ to the community she loves the most by creating opportunities and support for young performers to learn and grow. This year we welcome our Daughter Tiffany Duncan as Event Co-Manager.
CoastQuest always brings Guest Workshops, Adjudications and Performances from professionals such as Kelley Abbey, Jason Winters, Sarah Boulter, Renee Ritchie, Carly Cooper Smith, BJ Rouke, Lauren Seymour, Karina Lawrence, Cat Santos, Alisha Coon, Danielle Evrat, Aimee Whittaker, Jordan Grant, Cassie Bartho – and many more. Each year, CoastQuest gives away more than $20,000 worth of Cash & Prizes to assist young performers in the development of their training and into their careers.
As CoastQuest has grown and developed to reflect the ever-changing performing arts and local scene, we have introduced new sections, age groups & categories to create the fairest and most effective platform possible for young performers to learn and grow from their eisteddfod experience.
CoastQuest hosts competitors travelling from many different parts of NSW together with a host of beautiful Central Coast Dancers & Singers. We welcome you all and trust you will enjoy your time with us!
