Team App

State High's Dance Troupes program uses a smartphone app to facilitate easier communication between staff, students and parents/guardians. Team App is designed for use on smartphones (android and iPhone), iPads and can also be viewed online. It is free to download and does not incur a membership fee.

Team App keeps member contact details private and no members can communicate with each other through the app.

To download, go to Team App:

  1. Sign up using your name, date of birth and email address. You'll be sent an email to confirm your registration.
  2. Search for BSHS Dance and request access to the group students, teachers, or parents (whichever applies to you).
  3. Once your request is approved you will be able to see news and upcoming Dance Troupes events.

Workshops and competitions

Dance Troupes members engage in industry professional workshops and are mentored by our State High dance alumni.

Students are also invited to perform within the school production as well as dance showcases, assemblies, the Music and International Food Festival, the School Production and other school events such as the awards and graduation ceremonies.
