General Information:


At Dare 2 Dance, we offer the opportunity for students to be a part of our competition teams (Year 1 - Year 12). Auditions are held at the start of Term 1 each year, where the judging panel looks for technique, personality / stage presence and retention of choreography. We pride ourselves on creating well-rounded, hard-working, humble dancers. Dare 2 Dance enters many different competitions & eisteddfods each year, allowing our dancers the opportunity to gain confidence, improve technique, be disciplined and respectful both on and off the stage, and most importantly have fun with our D2D family. 


When planning to audition please consider:


Expectations | If you are successful at the audition and you accept our offer to join these performance team/s you will be representing Saint Stephen's College as well as Dare 2 Dance. It is expected that you attend every rehearsal. If, for whatever reason, two or more rehearsals are missed we may have to reconsider your place in the team/s. Successful students in Yr 4 and above are expected to take the extension class Stretch & Technique on Monday afternoons.
