Nineteen brilliant dancers are stepping out on stage with some of the best dancers from the 2017 Higher School Certificate Dance examinations at Callback 2017 over the next two days.

Department of Education Secretary Mark Scott commended the dancers, drawn from a dozen regional and metropolitan schools, on being selected to showcase their exemplary performances and compositions to a wider audience in Callback 2017.

“I’m sure these amazing dancers will impress audiences in the way they impressed the HSC examiners,” Mr Scott said.

“To be selected to perform at Callback is a real accomplishment.

“It is testimony to the dancers’ creativity, discipline and diligent devotion to countless hours of practice perfecting their dance.

“The four performances will be a chance to display their dance talents in a professionally staged setting.

“As they dance in Callback they will share their pride and joy with proud family and teachers who have supported their endeavours.

“They will also give hundreds of prospective dance students in the audience something to aspire to when it is their time before the HSC examiners.”

Mr Scott said Callback 2017 features two separate programs on Thursday and Friday, February 8 and 9 with evening and matinee performances on each day.

The matinees incorporate question and answer sessions with the Supervisor of Marking, HSC Dance offering students valuable insights into HSC dance and the commitment and preparation required for success.
