Riverside is privileged to have an experienced choreographer, and also an ex-student, on staff. We also inspire senior dance ensemble students to choreograph the junior ensemble dances and have had enormous success at the Sydney north dance festival and Ryde school spectacular. Our senior ensemble were finalists at the state dance festival in 2012 and we continue to provide dance students to perform in the school spectacular in November.
We encourage students to pursue opportunities outside the school at dance camps, ensembles and workshops organised by the NSW performing arts unit. These provide students with opportunities for students to learn new dance styles and techniques under experienced and talented dance specialists and choreographers. Dance is also offered through the curriculum as a Year 9 elective course.
