Dance | Central Coast Grammar School

Dance

Boys and girls can experience the joy and discipline of dance at all levels, whether they’re expert dancers, or just want to try it for fun.

Dance is a course choice in the curriculum for Years 9-12, including HSC.

In addition, cocurricular groups start in Year 3 covering all styles, interests and abilities. There are Jazz and Contemporary groups as well as an auditioned Advanced group allowing students to showcase their specialist talents.

Groups train before and after school and representative groups compete very successfully in local and Sydney Eisteddfods. Elite dancers take up the challenge to captain, lead a piece, choreograph or mentor a junior group.
