Students perform in AGHS’s annual Dance Night, the AGHS Musical every second year, and Year 7 Orientation Day for the next year’s group. The ensemble gives students the opportunity to progress their technique and performance quality in lyrical and contemporary forms. Rehearsals for this group are on Monday mornings before school at 7:15 - 8:30am, and costs $100 for the year.

The Year 8 Dance Company offers students in year 8 the opportunity to progress their dance technique during sport time. In year 8, students cannot elect dance as a subject, and this company offers the opportunity for weekly dance classes at Asquith. The students audition to be in the company at the end of year 7 for rehearsals to commence in Week 2 of Term 1. The Year 8 Company gives students performance opportunities at Sydney North Dance Festival, AGHS’s annual Dance Night, the AGHS Musical every second year and AGHS’s Presentation Day.

These companies have a vertical structure and are open to students from Years 8 - 11. The elective companies give students the opportunity to develop their performance quality as well as composition skills to choreograph with their teacher to create contemporary dance works.

Dance Night

 

Each year, Asquith Girls High School puts on a night of dance performances showcasing the talents of our HSC dance students, elective dance students and dance companies and ensembles. Dance Night gives valuable performance opportunities to students who elect dance as a subject, and those who have successfully auditioned to be involved in an ensemble or company. Further, it is an evening for year 12 students to display their major dance projects and perform shortly before their HSC practical examinations. Dance Night is a growing showcase and displays the talents and success of dance at Asquith
