2023 Create Choreographic Project - Dance

ASPIRE is again collaborating with internationally recognised Newcastle-based company Catapult Dance in 2023.

Building on the success of previous programs, the Create Choreographic Project will offer students enrolled in schools in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle the opportunity to participate in an intensive contemporary dance and collaborative choreographic program.

Students will be provided with a dance and performance art experience that is inclusive, non-competitive, creative and collaborative, and that reflects the working processes of the professional industry. Students will be encouraged to have a voice, and present their thoughts and ideas in a studio setting at the end of the program.

The Create Choreographic Project will run from Monday 27 February 2023 to Thursday 2 March 2023.

Dancers will be split into Stage 2 (Years 3-4) and Stage 3 (Years 5-6) groups to create original piece to perform. They will work alongside professional choreographers at Catapult Dance’s studio in Newcastle West.

Students must have a genuine interest in and flair for dance, but don't necessarily have to attend dance lessons outside of school.  Students can register for the program by filling out an application form, which must be signed by a parent/carer and teacher from their school.

Please forward completed forms via email to anne.atkins@mn.catholic.edu.au

Scholarship places are available for students in genuine need of financial assistance. Please contact Anne Atkins for further information.
