As opportunities arise, excursions are offered to see performances staged by preeminent companies such as with our partner, Sydney Dance Company and Bangarra.
In addition to the technical skills required to be a dancer, students will develop vital and transferrable ‘soft skills’ such as
Years 3 – 6
Up to 6 hours of dance training per week including classical ballet, and contemporary, with an option of jazz dance.
Years 7 – 12
Up to 10 hours of training per week including contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, tap, and classical ballet.
Students may elect to take a different performance option one day per week such as sport, acting or music to balance their week.
Years 11 – 12
HSC Dance is offered as a two-unit subject, separate from the Commercial Dance stream.
Dance students may also choose to participate in our After Hours program, which offers additional training opportunities in all genres of dance, as well as performance and eisteddfod work.
Possible career paths
Musical theatre performer
Some graduates choose to tread a different path by undertaking tertiary study or successful careers in completely different arenas while harnessing the life skills acquired through their performance training.
