Extracurricular Dance – MacKillop Dance Company
At MacKillop Catholic College it is our belief that every student should have the opportunity to widen their talents and skills. We are offering an after school dance program for both Junior and Senior School students. This program offers an important element to the growth and development of your child.
What Will My Child Learn?
Each term will have a different style focus where they will learn movement with a Dance to demonstrate their skills learnt. Students will learn technique in various styles including Hip Hop, Jazz, Contemporary, World Dance, Musical Theatre and more!
Juniors may participate in senior dance by audition only.
Additional rehearsals will be scheduled closer to performance dates.
Full attendance is required at all rehearsals however if unforeseen circumstances occur, such as injury or illness parents are required to email Ms Dunk (firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to rehearsal time.
MacKillop Dance Company is a full year commitment with rehearsals continuing through to the Semester 2 Dance Night.
Members of the MacKillop Dance Company are expected to participate and contribute in a manner consistent with College expectations, bringing their full focus and energy to each rehearsal.
The 2021 Schedule of Dance events will be announced soon.
These dates are subject to change and there may be additional events added.
