On Friday 26 May the Darwin High School Dance Department presented Dance17. The event was a smorgasbord of Dance performances and a true celebration of the Darwin Dance Community who entertained a very enthusiastic audience.

Over 120 Darwin High School students from Year 10, 11 and 12 were involved. 

Dance17 was also supported by many vibrant groups that make up the Darwin dance community: the exceptional Natalie Leslie and Upai Purri, the effervescent Grey Panthers, the fantabulous Pumper Jumpers, the impressive D-City Rockers, X-Generation and the Jade Dragon dancers, our very own girl crew WCB, Good Shepherd Lutheran College, Darwin Middle School and our studios of excellence the Darwin School of Ballet, That’s Dancing, The Darwin Performance Academy and Express Studios.

The performance received rave reviews.

I would just like to say that it was a wonderful night and all the students danced beautifully. You have done an excellent job at training each and every one of them, it's excellent that they have access to such a great program and the joys of dance.

Lyndal England, Good Shepherd Dance teacher
