Crown Street Public School participates in the exciting DANCESPORT CHALLENGE.


Dancesport Team 20162015 Dancesport Challenge

All students from Year 5 participate in 15 weeks of ballroom dance lessons with a professional coach. This culminates in a spectacular Grand Finale competition in Term 3.

This vibrant DEC Sydney Region dance program features over 700 students representing some 24 government schools dancing to the emotion and drama of The Salsa, Jive, Tango, Cha Cha and either Swing or Samba in a Grand Finale of colour, movement and sound at The State Sports Centre at Sydney Olympic Park.

Dancing at Homebush

30 students (15 boys and 15 girls) are chosen to have this unique opportunity. They will be taught Ballroom and Latin dancing by a professional teacher. This will occur for 1 hour per week, over 15 weeks in Terms 2 and 3.

Lessons culminate in a thrilling Grand finale competition and showcase that will be held at the State Sports Centre, Homebush.

The dances that will be taught include the Cha Cha, Tango, Jive and Salsa. On the tenth week of rehearsal our dance instructor will pick 4 couples to represent Crown Street Public School in one of the 4 dances taught. All students will dance in the showcase at the Grand Finale evening.

While the finale is a competition the main emphasis is on participation and great enjoyment. 

The Dancesport Challenge Final event is held at the State Sports Centre, Olympic Park Homebush Bay.
