Stage Challenge® and J Rock™ are back for 2016!

It’s a nationwide dance, drama and design spectacular which will see thousands of young people take the stage.

Stage Challenge is a high energy dance, drama and music extravaganza that aims to motivate and inspire students to lead positive pro-active lives by giving them a ‘natural high’ without the use of drugs, tobacco or alcohol.

This performing arts event is touring in May this year, providing students with the opportunity to express their creativity, as they are involved in every aspect of the performance. From set construction and choreography to hair, make-up and costume design, the students as the driving force behind the performances. This is their show, and their time to shine. The students are the stars!
