Dance encourages artistic creativity and active use of the imagination, whilst building confidence and an understanding of the human body. The school's beautifully appointed dance studio is located in the Lady Treatt Centre for Music and Dance.
Years 9 and 10
In Years 9 and 10 students can opt to experience the world of dance in courses that cover a range of contemporary dance styles.
They will be involved in exploring contemporary and modern, jazz and street styles. The activities allow students the opportunity to work with compulsory dance steps and also to create and present their own originally devised pieces.
Years 11 and 12
Dance is a WACE subject and is offered to Year 11 and Year 12 students. Students experience and enjoy personal achievement through expressing and challenging themselves physically. They work predominantly in the contemporary dance genre and are encouraged to work independently and with others to present dance works to a variety of audiences. There is a considerable theoretical and written component to the dance course.
Students are able to extend their dance experience by auditioning for Interhouse Dance and the Senior or Junior Dance Company each year.
