Classroom dance lessons

Throughout the year students participate in weekly classroom dance lessons.  The wonderful Performing Arts Hall is used for their dance classes. Students are guided though the classroom dance program by Kerri Theuerkauf or Mathew Young the Performing Arts team at Bellevue Park.  Students learn how to warm up their bodies, learn dance sequences, improvise, create their own choreography and take part in the yearly Performing Arts show.

Dance groups

Bellevue Park is very proud of their dance troupe called the Energisers and Inspirators.  These groups are made of students in Years 3/4 and 5/6 who audition to perform dance items at many eisteddfods and school performances.  There are a number of factors considered at the audition including more than just a student’s dance ability.  The groups rehearse each week before school and during break times to enhance their dance skills.  The groups are run by the creative team Mrs Theuerkauf and Mr Young who create exciting new dance items each year.

Here are some comments by some students who have been in the Inspirators program at Bellevue Park:

“I once was a shy person who never could perform.  But now I am much more confident and stronger to just let everything out.  I cannot believe I’ve had the opportunity to do this.  I am very happy that I tried out and now this will change my life forever”.

“Being involved in the Inspirators has given me more confidence to strive for higher goals which will give me more opportunity to be best I can be.  I can now perform in front of an audience without being shy.  The Inspirators have inspired me and many others”.

“It has made me feel like I actually belong to something and I am needed.  I have improved my self-confidence.  Also I have spent more time having fun with friends and also people who I haven’t known who have the same interest in dance.  It has made me learn a lesson about believing in myself and also if I have a goal to do something, it can always happen”.
