Weekly Dance Ensembles

Years 4 to 12

Applications are now closed.

The NSW Public Schools State Dance weekly 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 AMPA Dance Studios in Alexandria.

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.
