Academy of Dance

The Academy of Dance offers a variety of dance programs to cater for a range of abilities.
The program is designed to reflect the three categories of activities from the Cocurricular Development Model.

Dance Explore Program
This program offers classes that focus on improving technique as a fundamental element of dance.
Students are provided with opportunities to focus on a variety of skills and techniques that could be used in
different dance styles and performances. There are no performance requirements as part of this program.

Dance Elevate Program
This program offers weekly classes in different styles of dance to cater for a range of abilities. All classes
work towards the much anticipated Annual Dance Showcase and are also provided with other school-based
performance opportunities such as assemblies and liturgies.

Dance Excel Program
This program caters for experienced dancers who perform in the Annual Dance Showcase and are
leaders within the dance community of the College. It is audition-based as students will represent the College
at eisteddfods and competitions. Students involved are expected to commit to weekly dance lessons and
technical competencies which improve their overall performance skills. Students also have the opportunity
to perform at school-based and community events. The Academy of Dance is overseen by the Dance
Academy Convenor. The classes are facilitated by qualified dance teachers internal and external to the
College who bring a wealth of industry and professional experience to the program. On occasion, we also engage
high profile professional choreographers to share their wealth of experience with our students.
