Dance at Ravenswood encourages students to be creative risk takers, trying new things while developing a wide range of dance skills and techniques. Our program caters for beginners through to our elite Junior School Dance Company. All classes are a yearly commitment with semester fees.
The Junior School Dance Companies (Years 3-4 and Years 5–6) are audition only groups, aimed at providing our elite dancers with performance opportunities at eisteddfods and showcases. Successful students will present a high level of skill, technique and flexibility and must be available to attend a number of events throughout the year.
