Burnside Primary values excellence in dance and is committed to providing opportunities in which children can discover and develop their talents. We encourage children to participate in dance in and outside the classroom, and our school hip-hop and aerobics teams.

Hip Hop

Year 5 and 6 students have the opportunity to participate in our Hip-Hop dance group. Training is held every Wednesday and the main competitions are in Term 3. Yearly we compete in the Canterbury Hip-Hop competition. The children have a chance to show off their creative dance skills, dress up, and have some fun. Check out our video to see what we do!

Year 5 and 6 students also have the opportunity to participate in aerobics to further their passion for dance and aerobic fitness. These students are extensively trained weekly leading up to competition season in Term 3. Yearly we compete in Primary Sports Canterbury and NZCAF regional competitions, leading up to National competition. We are very proud to have made it to Nationals every year since launching our program with fantastic results. We pride ourselves on the opportunities available for students to achieve at such a high level.
