The Hastings Secondary College Dance Company enables students to participate in a range of Dance ensembles. It is an extension program for those already involved in the Creative Industries or Dance subject classes or studying dance externally.
The Dance Company caters for students from Year 7 to Year 12 inspiring dancers of all ability levels to strive for their full potential. Students receive technical training from qualified dance teachers in Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, and Hip Hop dance styles.
Students who engage with the Dance program have the opportunity to participate in workshops with guest artists challenging physical boundaries and performing professionally choreographed works.
We offer excursions to view live performances by well-respected dance companies and provide opportunities in the competitive dance domain and at community and school events. The great work of College dancers is showcased at our awards of excellence, school spectacular, CAPA nights, Year 6 into 7 nights and many community events.
Auditions take place Term 1 every year as well as when position become available in Term 4 (when year 12 complete their studies).
The Dance Company teachers mentor students in time management so that they can compete for their studies and manage the demands of dance. Teachers work with students to assist in completing scholarships for future pathways in the professional dance world.
