The program

The Australian Ballet’s Education program is excited to offer a series of workshops for secondary students. These workshops can be stand-alone or part of a residency and can be linked to an attendance of a performance by The Australian Ballet or the Step Inside Behind The Scenes program.

Contemporary ballet workshop

This workshop will let students explore the world of ballet, create co-authored work and develop choreographic skills. Students take part in a warm-up, technical exercises, learn repertoire from a ballet and explore choreographic elements. The workshop can be crafted around the students' skill level and will discuss the elements of ballet such as costume design, music, and narrative themes. Max 30 students per workshop.

Insight talk

This workshop focuses on the behind the scenes elements which are involved in bringing a ballet production to life. Students take part in a warm-up and dance exercises followed by an insight talk discussing elements such as the music, design, costumes and daily routine of professional dancers.
