This unit is designed to investigate the origins of dance around the world and how we can use basic composition tools to create and present our own dances. Students participate in practical classes and explore the role of dance in various cultures such as African, Indian Bollywood, Chinese Ribbon dance, Spanish Flamenco, French Can Can and Tinikling from The Philippines.

Daramalan Dance Troupe

The Daramalan Dance Troupe provides co-curricular opportunities for talented and committed students from Years 7 to 10. The Dance Troupe allows students to explore their interest in Dance and to perform at the Youth Dance Festival at The Canberra Theatre Centre. Students audition for entry into the Troupe and need to be available for all rehearsals and scheduled performances. It provides an excellent opportunity to meet and work with professional dance teachers and choreographers and other students who have similar interests and a passion for dance.
