Senior Contemporary Dance Program

Welcome to the Senior Contemporary Dance Program in association with Sydney Dance Company and The McDonald College.

This program will enable students in Years 10-12 to engage all aspects of Contemporary Dance training and academic studies at The McDonald College, inclusive of the NSW Higher School Certificate.

Students will develop their technical skills and artistry while working with choreographers and educators pioneering their art form. Students may come from a variety of diverse dance backgrounds and will train towards an elite contemporary dance career as an ensemble member of a full-time dance company, an independent dancer, choreographer, director, dance educator, or an integral collaborator in any creative environment.
