DANCE + DRAMA = ACTIVE, CREATIVE, RISK TAKERS!
So how can Footsteps develop active, creative, risk takers?
We specialise in curriculum compliant school dance programs where dance is used as a vehicle to develop students’ social skills, confidence and creativity. Students will experience various dance styles including hip hop, funk, modern pop, contemporary, partner and various multicultural dances from around the world.
Students learn to dance both individually and with a partner, promoting social interaction and confidence building, as well as improved fitness, coordinating and gross motor skills. Our dance program has been developed around the Australian National Curriculum and include both individual and partner dances, indigenous inspired routines and opportunities for student choreography in our term long programs.
We thrive on supporting teachers with learning outcomes for their students. Our programs are not only exciting and fun for students but sustainable for teachers from dance floor to classroom.

Our Drama Program engages students through purposeful and creative structured activities based on improvisational drama. Students will explore and experience the role of both artist and audience.
We encourage students to become aware of situations as they listen and respond as fictional characters. During a program, students will build on their skills, assisting in their ability to develop an understanding of a character.
Fun and innovative activities will develop improvisation skills and encourage students to explore their voice and movement to create role-play. Our drama program is curriculum compliant and students’ learning outcomes will be achieved using voice, movement, social skills and fun activities.
