Covenant Dance Academy

Covenant Dance Academy offers an after-school dance program where students can express their faith and creativity whilst pursuing their passion for dance. While offering students a variety of the most popular dance styles, and incorporating modern music and movement, Covenant Dance Academy ultimately desires students to glorify God. This often requires a counter-cultural approach with the selection of age-appropriate music, choreography and costuming.

The Dance Academy offers lessons on Monday to Thursday afternoons on-site at Covenant and caters for preschoolers through to senior students and adults. Classes are held in a variety of spaces around the school, with most in the air-conditioned School Hall or Performing Arts Space. Students work towards performing in the end of year dance concert.  

Covenant Dance Academy currently offers classes in Ballet, RAD Ballet Examination, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical Jazz, Lyrical/Contemporary, Dance Fitness, Worship, Tiny Tots Dance and Musical Theatre.

Free trial lessons are available, and enrolments may be taken throughout the year.

We warmly welcome students from other schools to attend the Covenant Dance Academy.
