On Saturday 17 June, Sheldon College presented their annual dance extravaganza, Just Dance. Performances featured students from the ASTA Dance Academy, ASTA Professionals Program, Classroom Dance, the Senior College Choreography Competition and the Senior College Musical, Mary Poppins. The 2017 Prefects and selected Staff also joined in to compete in a dance-off. A range of dance genres and styles were displayed including jazz, ballet, contemporary, lyrical and hip hop.

Previous Dance Captains, who have been responsible for shaping and leading the dance program at Sheldon College, were invited back to enjoy the show and 2015 Alumnus, Travis Johnson, spoke on their behalf about the way in which dance, and teaching dance, has impacted his life beyond school.
