Our purpose is to facilitate and support the Teaching and Learning of Dance (as defined and described in DoE curriculum documents) and Dance Performance in the Public Schools of Sydney North.
The principles which underpin this purpose are –
Inclusivity - this committee aims to serve students of all ages, genders, dance experience, teachers and schools across our region
A reflection of the ethos and standards of public education - with particular reference to age-appropriate and gender-appropriate values
An understanding of Dance as a performing art - within the curriculum, guided by the spirit and fundamentals of the K-to-12 Dance syllabuses
An appreciation for the collaborative endeavour - of students, teachers and parents in experiencing learning in Dance and realising and presenting Dance performances
An aspiration for excellence - in all aspects of teaching and learning, performance and production.
The Committee meets numerous times throughout the year and we welcome new teachers to our team. For more information on meeting dates and venues, please contact Kim Peade - firstname.lastname@example.org.
