Dance is a thriving and popular art form that is studied and enjoyed by students at Gymea Technology High School. Dance provides students a platform on which they can be creative, fit and healthy as well as build confidence to perform for audiences.
Dance as part of the curriculum
Dance is studied by all Year 7 students and is offered as an elective subject in Years 9-12. Students who study Dance in Years 11/12 work towards completing the Board endorsed 2 Unit Dance course for their Higher School Certificate. Past high achievers in HSC Dance have received Band 6 marks and have been nominated for Callback, a showcase of the most exemplary works from the HSC candidature.
Extra-curricular Dance programs
All students have the opportunity to audition for a place in one of Gymea’s extra-curricular Dance Companies. Being part of a Dance Group gives students the opportunity to express their talent and love of dance. These programs cater for students of various experiences, from all year levels. Rehearsals are held weekly during sport time or after school. Our dance companies have many opportunities to perform and in numerous events both inside in and outside of school. These include:
