To further enhance the new Dance Curriculum introduced in 2015, St Mary’s College offers students with some dance experience the opportunity to join several dance troupes: Junior and Senior Contemporary and Junior and Senior Hip Hop and other dance groups as required. There are auditioned and open troupes to cater for dancers of all ability levels.
The troupes rehearse weekly, usually before or after school, and perform at school and community events throughout the year. The troupes also perform at various dance eisteddfods in the Ipswich, Brisbane and Gatton regions.
The St Mary’s Dance Troupes perform dances in a variety of styles including contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, tap, ballet and other traditional dance styles.
