Dance ensembles - weekly

Years 4 to 12

The NSW public schools weekly-based dance ensembles program aims to foster the development of talented students from Years 4 to 12 in dance from public schools across NSW. Students train and rehearse dance works after school hours during school term at Australian College of Physical Education (ACPE) in Sydney Olympic Park.

Weekly dance ensembles develop high-level skills in dance technique, composition and performance. Training is aligned to syllabus outcomes and ensemble students perform at the State Dance Festival each year.
