Dance Group - Currently 2012 Reigning NATIONAL & STATE J Rock Champions
At Dapto Public School Dance Group is a very popular and important part of Creative and Practical Arts.
Dance Group usually participates in Wakakirri Dance Festival and
J Rock each year.
At Dapto, we have a long-standing tradition of production excellence and throughout our history of performing we have done very well in both the Wakakirri National Story Festival and JRock (Junior Rock Eisteddfod).
This year we are very proud to say that our production "A Piece of Straw" placed 1st at the NSW J Rock competitive STATE final in Sydney, held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre (the first time we have entered the Sydney competitive final). We were then awarded 1st Place at the NATIONAL Finals for J Rock Competitive 2012. We also placed 2nd in our Wakakirri National Story Festival FINAL. Three amazing achievements made even more special as we were able to achieve these amazing results after our previous production last year in 2011, entitled True Inspiration won first place in the 2011 Story Dance category at the story-sharing arts festival Wakakirri Primary, which challenges schools to "make a positive impact on the world around you". This national win followed on from our success as NSW Regional Winners and from the Junior Rock Eisteddfod where we won the 'Spirit of J-Rock Award'.
