Dance Nation is a school dance program uniquely designed to build resilience in students through movement. It engages hundreds of students from across the ACT region and brings them together to celebrate in a community Showcase Spectacular.
Over a 15-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.
