Year 7 and 8 students are able to select High Performance Dance as a subject. This is an inclusive course where students are streamed into classes based on experience level. High Performance Dance has a strong practical and performance focus and is embedded with a dance literacy program.
Students in years 7, 8 and 9 are able to perform as part of our Junior High Performance Dance Team at local competitions and Arts events. This is an extracurricular group run on Wednesday afternoons. Participation in the team is by audition.
