Engadine High School

Dance at EHS

Engadine High offers opportunities in Dance as an elective study and in extra-curricular activities. Our aims are to encourage students to develop knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes in Performing, Composing and Appreciation. The main aim of the syllabus is for students to study Dance as an ‘Art form’. Dance involves the development of physical skill as well as aesthetic and artistic understanding. The dance curriculum aims to develop physical, cognitive, creative and performance skills, and knowledge in all students regardless of previous experience or level of skill. Students learn to develop ideas and to express them creatively as they make and perform dances and analyse and interpret dance as works of art. They think imaginatively and share ideas, feelings, values and attitudes while physically and intellectually exploring the communication of ideas, themes and feelings through movement.

Engadine High School has been represented strongly on a state level in Schools Spectacular, Sydney Region Dance Festival, and State Dance Ensembles and Nationally in Rock Eisteddfod and Wakakiri. Students also receive the opportunity to participate in professional workshops and masterclasses. Dance is also an integral part of our International Tour Program and recently undertook a Performing Arts Tour to USA performing and participating in Youth Education programs for Dance in Los Angeles and New York.
