We know our Dance School Student love to dance and perform at any chance that get.

Many dance school student have also approached us through our previous years, stating they would like to participate in our program, however are prohibited by the secondary school, or other reasons they weren't allowed to miss a day.

We listened, we wanted to present a solution that would not affect schooling, or dance school time which is so valuable training, and gain WACE achievements.
