The Dance Academy Tour
Every year the entire Dance Academy (Primary, Junior and Senior
sections) tour ten local schools. They perform their latest pieces
to the whole school in assembly and give an educational talk on the
meaning behind each piece.
After the performance, the Dance Academy teaches small sections
of each dance to groups from a class within the school. After each
group has developed the performance material, the class perform
what they have learnt back to their school in assembly.
