South Coogee offers a number of opportunities for students in Years 1-6 to be part of non-competitive and competitive dance ensembles.
Students in Years 1 and 2 can take part in the Junior Dance Ensemble Group. The other non-competitive group is the Year 3 and 4 Intermediate dance ensemble. Rehearsals for these groups are held once a week at lunchtime. These groups perform at the mid-year and end of year Musicale.
Students in Year 3 -6 also have the opportunity to trial to be a part of two competitive Dance Ensembles. Auditions are held at the beginning of Term 1 each year. There is an A and a B group which accommodates up to 30 students. This is a talented dance program for students who study dance outside of school as they only have 1 session per week. The groups work towards a couple of events each year. The first is an Audition for the NSW Public Schools Dance Festival, and our teams have been successful in this process for 10 years. They also perform at Showcase@the Juniors, and also at both the Mid Year and End of Year Musicales, and at the Fiesta.
