Dancestar and Schoolaerobics National Championships

During September, our Years 5 and 6, Years 7 and 8 and Senior School Dance teams have competed in the TFT Dancestar Nationals as part of an online competition. Qualifiers were asked to submit footage of themselves for judging and sections were streamed each night with results announced at the end of each week.

The Haileybury teams competed against many schools and dance schools from around Australia and achieved some of the best results Haileybury has seen at Nationals to date. This is a testament to the hard work, time, effort, passion and dedication of our amazing students.

Of the nine teams and one duo who competed at Nationals, seven achieved medals. Special mention to:

  • The Senior Contemporary Team winning Gold with a score of 91.5
  • The Senior Jazz and Large Hip Hop teams winning Gold
  • The Years 7 and 8 Small Hip Hop Team achieving Silver
  • The Years 7 and 8 Large Hip Hop Team achieving Bronze
  • The Years 5 and 6 Jazz Small Team at Edrington winning Gold, and
  • Our Old Skool duo, Cassie Peele and Teri Batis, winning Gold. Teri graduated from Haileybury in 2013 and Cassie graduated in 2016.

Congratulations to all our dancers.

We are super proud of your amazing results and look forward to being back on the Gold Coast for the Nationals in 2022!
