Lower North Coast Senior Dance Ensemble

The Lower North Coast Senior Ensemble is for talented dance students from NSW public schools in Year 9 to Year 12.  

Membership is by audition only and is open to students attending NSW public schools, particularly but not limited to the Mid North Coast, Hastings and Great Lakes Networks.  

This ensemble is aimed at talented dance students who display a high level of technical skill, performance quality and wish to be involved in the choreographic process to create, learn and perform 2 dance works (contemporary and hip hop) at the Lower North Coast Dance Festival.

We are thrilled to announce that we have secured Cadi McCarthy, professional contemporary choreographer and founder of Catapult Dance, to work collaboratively with the dancers to create an original contemporary dance work.

Students will also work with Julia Livingston to create a unique hip hop work.
