Dancing Like the Stars 2016
July 25–26, 2016
Dancing Like the Stars performance evenings are the culmination of a free nine-week programme that brings dance into primary (with a focus on low decile) schools. In the first half of the programme each school learns a range of dance moves associated with a particular dance style, in the second half of the programme, each school is taught a choreographed dance routine. During the final week the schools perform their routine in a professional theatre context. Dance styles on offer in 2015 include, contemporary, jazz, ceroc, salsa, bachata merengue, ballroom, integrated dance and Samba de Gafieira.
The primary aim of the programme is to promote and provide an active lifestyle through dance - a non-competitive form of physical activity - to children who would not normally be able to participate in dance for recreation. The programme has several secondary aims/benefits, which include building basic social skills and interactions, team building and teaching children about other cultures.
