PC Dance 2023
An opportunity for our passionate dancers to extend their technique beyond the classroom
Perth College enjoys a rich and diverse Performing Arts program with high-quality dance, drama and music initiatives for our students.
The PC Dance program is an additional co-curricular program, offered outside of school hours to complement our school programs. This is a fun-filled way to improve co-ordination, strength and creativity in a friendly, inclusive dance environment.
The PC Dance syllabus was designed to bring out the best in each young dancer and inspire them to improve at their own pace. This year, the PC Dance program will be run in partnership with Silhouette Dance Studio, allowing us to offer an additional genre for our students with the introduction of Jazz classes alongside our Ballet program.
This program is offered to PC students and also non-PC students, with specific details outlined below.
The Ballet program will be held on Saturday mornings in the Dance Studio (DANS), with the program covering the following areas:
- Stretching, strength and conditioning
- Building Co-ordination
- Developing Technique with a mixture of Barre and Centre work
- Our older students will also do some Floor Barre
- All students will also learn a ballet sequence or enchaînement
Ballet sessions will be run as follows:
- Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Ballet – Saturdays from 9.00 am to 9.45 am
