Dressing rooms

Stage size, curtains and lighting

  • Stage size: W10 x D10
  • Centre front dot is approximately 1.7m back from the edge of the stage.  Remaining dots are approximately 3.1m apart sideways, and 2.6m apart front-to-back.  Note that these measurements may change to match the position of the 9 spot lights.
  • As per CVI rule 2.9.1, mid curtain may be used for reveals but competitors must be as far back to the curtain as possible.
  • Limited lighting available – 9 spots, stage colour wash, cyc colour wash, deckle, blinders.  Smoke and follow spot not available at this venue.
  • DLP available for all sessions. Costs – $20 for single use or $35 for full competition (more than one item).  Invoiced at the end of the Longbeach competition season.
  • Longbeach strongly recommends using PowerPoint for DLPs as we cannot guarantee that venue equipment will read mp4 files.

Filming of your items

  • All Club Coaches have the opportunity to have their performances professionally filmed for the coach’s private use.
  • In 2019 Brian from Panorama Videos has requested the following information be provided to all competing clubs…..
    • Those with a permanent booking need not do anything – they will be filmed automatically
    • If you wish to have a permanent booking, please contact Brian on 93385256 asap and your pricing will be held at last year’s prices
    • All other clubs must pre-book no later than 3 days prior to your competition day and you will also be charged at last year’s prices. Ring Brian on 93385256 to book.
    • If no pre-bookings are made for a particular session there may not be a videographer allocated
    • Booking on the day is still possible IF A VIDEOGRAPHER IS PRESENT however and additional charge of $1.00 per item will be applied
    • A booking constitutes filming all items for that club – no picking and choosing of items
    • Bookings are preferred from the Club Secretary with contact number and email address so accounts can be issued more efficiently. If individual accounts are to be sent (ie by section in one club) an additional fee will be applied.
    • Longbeach is not involved in pricing, invoicing or filming errors – all queries should be directed to Brian Godber


  • Full canteen available (run by the venue) but is situated outside
