We offer classes to students of all ages – from children as young as 18 months to adults. We currently run 35 classes per week including Contemporary, Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Creative Movement, Graceful and Gifted, Boys Hip Hop (returning Term 2 2020) and Wiggle with Diggle.
In addition to our regular weekly classes we run several special events throughout the year, including 'Wellness Mornings for Grown up’s' 'Specialist Workshops' with Guest Choreographers, our very special 'Family Dance Project' and Pizza and Movie nights. For more information please see our upcoming events page on this site, and like/follow our socials pages.
Although our focus is sharing our love of dance with all of our students we are also strongly committed to their holistic development as well-rounded happy individuals and competent dancers.
Dance Northside holds an annual end-of-year concert. This is an awesome opportunity for students to showcase their hard work and come together as a community.
The concert is a confidence-building and enriching experience for all students. We put on a high quality, yet stress-free show for both parents and students. The music we use, the choreography we create and the costumes we provide are always appropriate to the age of the student. Our makeup requirements are minimal - in fact optional! No sewing of costumes is required, just a small performance fee. All rehearsals are held within usual class times, with a short performance season.
2020 CONCERT: Gungahlin Collage Theatre 12th-13th December
Dance Northside has two Performance Groups, one is intermediate and the other is advanced.
Under the close direction of Holly Diggle, the performance groups work with various choreographers to create performance pieces of a high standard in Contemporary, Hip Hop, and Jazz styles, whilst maintaining the well established values of Dance Northside.
We are not a competitive performance group; we do not compete in eisteddfods. We perform at local dance and cultural events around Canberra such as Raiders Games, Floriade, the Multicultural Festival and local Fetes. Our aim is to produce high quality work and challenge our advanced dancers whilst maintaining a strong sense of community and personal growth.
Auditions for the Performance Groups are held annually. Students aged 10 years and over are welcome to audition. Please get in touch if you would like more information.
