NSW Public Schools Dance Ensembles

The NSW Public Schools State Dance Companies and Ensembles aim to foster the development of talented male and female dance students, and provide performance opportunities that showcase excellence in this art form.  The Company and Ensembles play a major role in high profile events held across NSW and feature in the State Dance Festival and the Schools Spectacular.


Weekly Ensembles

Students who are selected for the Sydney metropolitan based dance companies and ensembles are required to attend compulsory weekly rehearsals held after school hours at the University of NSW Dance Studios, Level 3.  Students from Years 4-12 are eligible to apply.

The successful 2014 Ensemble students will start the week of Monday 24 February 2014:-

   - Primary Ensembles start Monday 24 February (5.00-6.30pm)

State Ensemble

We also offer an opportunity for high school students only (Years 7-12) who cannot attend weekly rehearsals and live in the Sydney Metropolitan area or Regional NSW to join an ensemble.  This ensemble participates in a series of intensive weekend dance workshops in Sydney during the year.
