Dare 2 Dance
Dare 2 Dance provides a solid foundation in dance training in a fun, supportive and nurturing environment.
At Dare 2 Dance our aim is to encourage personal development, growth and confidence in each individual student, whether they choose to dance recreationally or strive to pursue a career in dance. We believe that the art of dance not only fosters respect, discipline and musicality in a student, but enlivens a passion for artistic expression and creativity.
Many previous Dare 2 Dance students have forged successful careers in dance, as qualified dance teachers or professional dancers in Australia and internationally.
Dance classes are held before, and after school, in a purpose-built dance studio on-campus at the College.
We proudly offer tuition in:
