Dance Parents Committee (DPC) is a group of parents of dancers in the Canterbury Arts Programme. We meet once a month to discuss issues related to the support of the dance programme and we hope this school year to continue with our objectives:
- Support the dance program and education in CHS through fundraising, event co-ordination, program promotion (public awareness), costume, library and archives inventory and maintenance
- Enhance opportunities for students in the dance program at CHS through school visits, tours, student workshops and seminars, performances with professional artists and local dance organizations.
- Raise public awareness in the local community of the importance of CHS Dance Program in terms of academic and social development, and career potential
- Promote communication and the visibility of the CHS Dance Program with other Arts Programs, Arts teachers and school councils
We have strengthened relationships with a number of individuals and groups, raised awareness among parents of the vital role they can play in supporting arts education and initiated some awareness among the dance students themselves.
We meet in the Canterbury High School Library on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm.
