The Dance Academy is committed to providing excellence in Performance Arts tuition and aims to create young dancers who balance high professional standards in dance with emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.The Dance Academy’s carefully designed progressive education structure takes participants from their first steps to a professional career. If you are an emerging talent in dance or already an extremely talented performer our classes in jazz, contemporary, hip hop, musical theatre and ballet will cater for the interests and needs of dancers of all ages; beginners through to advanced.
SPGS Dance Academy is excited to announce that in 2018 we will be offering Royal Academy of Dance (R.A.D) Ballet Assessments for students from Years 1 – 6. We hope to continue to grow this program with the intention of offering exams to our Junior School and High School students in 2019.
Dancers who are participating in company ensembles will also have the opportunity to be involved in multiple eisteddfods and festivals throughout 2018. All dance students within the academy will be given the opportunity to perform in a SPGS showcase. High School students will perform in the mid- year dance showcase, Ricochet, and all dancers are able to perform in the end of year showcase, Sojourn. These showcases are held at the Joan Sutherland Centre and display the works that the dancers have been developing throughout the year. The combined wealth of knowledge and passion of the Dance Academy staff has created a premiere studio for innovation, passion and outstanding results.
