Ballet girlDance is studied in the three strands of Performance, Composition and Appreciation Allowing students to improve their physical ability, stamina and dance skills through practical participation in different dance styles. Students have the opportunity to perform as a soloist, and as part of a group. Dance gives students confidence and expression, understanding a deeper value of a healthy lifestyle and expressive ability.
