Dance is one of the many co-curricular activities we offer. We are consistently delighted by the commitment and skill displayed by our dance groups.
Arden’s dance groups comprise of a range of genres: Contemporary, Hip Hop and Jazz. We are able to mix and separate genres to cater for the interests and abilities of our dancers.
Our dance groups are divided into junior and senior groups and we also have mixed groups of Year 7 to Year 12 students. We encourage both boys and girls to join our dance groups. Many of our senior students take a leadership role in our dance groups including assisting with choreography, role modelling and helping younger students at rehearsals and performances.
We compete throughout the year at a number of eisteddfods including North West Dance Stars, City of Ryde Eisteddfod, The Ultimate Dance Challenge and The Hills Dance Spectacular.
We also perform at a variety of school and community functions including the Arden Fair, Presentation Night and School assemblies.
The Arden Dance Group has been awarded many accolades since its establishment in 2008.
