Dance Nation is a school arts program for primary and high school aged students uniquely designed to build within each individual a sense of identity, belonging and pride.

Over a 16-week period, hundreds of young people from across the ACT are engaged in ‘designing and rehearsing’ a dance, showcasing this routine in a celebratory atmosphere that enables them to shine.

HOW WE WORK

Each school is provided with a weekly dance coach to work with your teachers and students to develop a dance based on a positive theme that builds school culture. The program concludes with a large performance called the Dance Nation Schools Spectacular held at the Royal Theatre – National Convention Centre.

  • The program enhances student wellbeing, dance skills and social skilling
  • The program attracts positive attention and publicity for your school community
