What is Dance Excellence?

Dance Excellence provides talented Junior Secondary dance students the opportunity to pursue high level dance training in contemporary, jazz, hip hop and other world dance styles, guided by expert specialist dance teaching staff.

Dance Excellence strives to develop each student by providing a thorough grounding in all aspects of dance including:

  • high level dance training
  • choreographic exploration
  • live performance opportunities
  • improving co-ordination and muscle tone
  • exploring creativity
  • building strength to improve self esteem
  • developing self-discipline, physical fitness and poise
  • developing musical concepts and appreciation
  • achieving technical excellence and artistic qualities
  • improving literacy through an appreciation of dance as an art form
  • developing cognitive techniques
  • developing teamwork and versatility.

Places within our Dance Excellence Program are offered each year to students through an audition process.  Students must exhibit talent and ability along with a strong work ethic and student performance is monitored regularly.  Students must display suitable behaviour and effort across all subjects whilst in this program as these characteristics are essential for students to be able to undertake the rewarding demands and advantages this program has to offer.  The school, in consultation with families reserves the right to withdraw students from this program at any time.
