Dancesport at Northcross
Dancesport is an opportunity for students to learn ballroom and Latin dancing. It is suitable for both beginners and experienced dancers. Students will learn four routines: Cha Cha Cha, Samba, Rhythm Foxtrot, and Jive. These routines are traditionally partnered dances, therefore students will be expected to practise and perform with a partner. Students will rotate dance partners frequently until the most suitable combinations are identified and assigned by the coach and manager.
Dancesport is a 13-week commitment. All students who register will attend two lessons a week for all of Term 3 and the beginning of Term 4. These lessons are in preparation for the inter-schools dancesport competition held in late October. This competition is a fantastic opportunity for students to showcase their well-rehearsed routines, as well as view performances from professional dancers.
Registration for Dancesport will be done through the NX Online Shop.
Total fees are $150 ($6.00 per lesson for 25 lessons). A non-refundable deposit of $60 is required with registration. Remaining fees will be due Thursday 21 September.
There will be a possibility of more lessons should the competition date change.
Additional costs for attending the competition will be called for at the time.
