About Hunter Dance Festival

Hunter Schools Dance Festival

Hunter Schools Dance Festival presents the works of over 2000 NSW public school students from Kindergarten to Year 12. 

The 4 day festival highlights the range of styles explored through the study of dance in public schools. These performances are underpinned by creativity, confidence and respect for one another fostered by their dedicated teachers.

As a whole the festival allows students an opportunity to experience performing in a professional production to a live audience whilst also gaining an understanding of the arts industry.
