Dance is becoming increasingly popular at New Plymouth Boys High School. We have an awesome hip-hop crew who meet and practise during Sports and Cultural Practice period, and perform at various events on the school calendar.

We support and encourage a wide range of dance styles and will endeavour to connect students with the support that they need to pursue their passion.

There are opportunities to dance in the school production which is combined with New Plymouth Girls’ High School.
