Tell us a little about what led you to apply for the cadetship program
AW: I really liked the idea of getting to travel to new places, meet new people and exchange stories and skills. I love sharing my knowledge of dance and teaching young people how to express themselves through movement and getting the opportunity to perform on top of that was incredibly rewarding.
TS: The Australian Ballet Education & Outreach team came to Cairns and did some workshops when I was only a young boy at the time. In 2022, after I graduated school and turned 18, I joined The Australian Ballet team First Nations cadets because I wanted to pursue dance and travel.
