The Dance Team work collaboratively to provide the choreography and segment direction for the vast majority of segments in the Schools Spectacular.
Members of the Dance Team can take on roles including Segment Director, Choreographer, Assistant Choreographer and Designer.
NSW Public School teachers who have skills in dance and design are encouraged to apply. We encourage applications from experienced teachers as well as teachers who have not been involved in the team in previous years.
Video audition requirement
All applicants are required to submit an online video audition showcasing their choreographic skills. This video needs to be uploaded to YouTube. The link is submitted with your online application.
The Arts Unit will cover the cost of casual release for current school staff. This will be paid to your school for the schools days you are at the Schools Spectacular. The Arts Unit does not cover accommodation or travel. Teachers will need to arrange their own accommodation while they are participating in the Schools Spectacular and organise their own parking and transport to and from the performance venue.
Read the information and confirm you are available for all dates listed.
Complete the online form by Tuesday 14 June 2022. Please include as much detail of your experience as possible
Submit your online application to the Schools Spectacular Team. Your Principal will be asked to endorse your application at a later date.
