Bringing people together through shared experiences

Bringing people together through shared experiences

Arts and culture programs play a huge role in shaping communities across the Pilbara. Dance is especially popular across the region, with Port Hedland boasting four dance schools attended by over 450 local children. Hedland Senior High School is also the only school outside the Perth metropolitan area that offers a Specialist Arts Program, with students given the opportunity to take part in specialised training in Dance, Show Choir and many other subjects.

By partnering with the West Australian Ballet, the Roy Hill Community Foundation has been able to create a consistent regional arts program, with a focus on getting the community involved from the start. This has not only helped to push local employment and educational opportunities, but as also provided a huge sense of pride and togetherness throughout the community. Events such as the 2019 Gala Performance showcase the incredible potential the Pilbara has to offer.

The opportunity to engage with children, young people and their families allows us to enrich thousands of lives with dance across our great stateJess Machin, Executive Director, West Australian Ballet
