Winmalee High School offers an extensive dance program available to all students in Years 7-12.
Along with our elective Dance program in Years 9-12, we offer a variety of dance ensemble groups. These talented groups of students and super dedicated staff, demonstrate extraordinary commitment to practice and performance.
Junior Ensemble (Years 7-8)
Intermediate Ensemble (Years 9-10)
Senior Ensemble (Years 9-12)
Hip Hop Crew (Years 7-12)
WHS Dance Company (invitation only, Years 8-12)
Rehearsals for these ensembles are generally scheduled before school at 7.30am-8.30am once a week.
Each ensemble has the opportunity to perform at a variety of local, regional and state level events coordinated by the Department of Education and public calendar.
Some of these events include:
Synergy Public Schools Dance Festival - June
Bring It On Hip Hop Competition - June
Hawkesbury Eisteddfod - August
Blue Mountains Nepean Dance Festival - September
State Dance Festival (if selected) - September
Schools Spectacular (if selected) - November

Winmalee High School has had excellent success in recent years at local eisteddfods and with gaining selection into the State Dance Festival and Schools Spectacular. We have had numerous students selected to be involved in the State Dance Ensembles and the Aboriginal Dance Company.
