Synergy Dance Festival

Synergy Dance Festival previously named 'Sydney West Dance Festival' has been running successfully for the past 30 years, providing dance performance opportunities for Kindergarten to Year 12 NSW public school students in a professional theatre environment.

Our mission is to make the festival inclusive to all ages all ages, genders, experience and public schools to showcase dance as a performing art within the guidelines of the K-12 Dance syllabus and to appreciate the collaborative effort of school teachers, students and parents in presenting dance performances.
