Each performance displays the passion, skills and creativity of students and teachers as they explore the art of dance.

The aim of the Lower North Coast Dance Festival is to showcase high quality, well-choreographed items that use the Dance Syllabus as the foundation for creating work with integrity and merit. The focus of the Dance Festival is on producing excellence in dance and promoting the high quality of students, teachers, performers and choreographers in the Lower North Coast.
