One local school continues to expand its programs, including dance, and this year, into radio broadcasting. The Essington School Darwin has been developing its dance programs in the past fi ve years and is now seeing considerable interest from students in dance. Students are encouraged to strive for, and reach individual goals. The radio broadcasting initiative this year with DARWIN FM will soon see students conducting a daily youth radio program after school. This builds on previous programs with Radio Larrakia over many years. The middle school programs cater for students at different levels of competence, and for dance performance evenings, multi-aged groups are put together. This sees students down to six years of age dancing with students in the middle school. Group display programs use jazz and modern dance movements and techniques. In class, students learn new moves and techniques as well as revising techniques to create group dance routines. Students from different cultural backgrounds are encouraged to share their traditional cultural dances with other students at the school. At the end of a term, parents and friends are invited to see students perform. In April, Essington dance teacher Lisa Svara led a group of Essington Middle School students to Sydney for a special dance education program. This included the opportunity to work with instructors in Sydney, and to see dance performances at the Sydney Opera House. Through the dance program we hope to provide students with the opportunity to discover the talents they have, and to develop a positive self-concept in students, Principal David Cannon said. Essington Senior College and Middle School students regularly perform at community events, including recently at the Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival, and dance showcase on the Nightcliff Foreshore. For further information about the Schools music, dance, radio broadcasting or middle school programs, phone the School Offi ce on 8985 0100.
