Behind the Scenes

Every morning, six days a week, our dancers take class. It helps them find new heights of technical excellence and maintain their peak fitness. Get a privileged, in-theatre view of their training, with commentary by artistic staff, then sit in as our top dancers rehearse for an upcoming production. Behind the Scenes is perfect for ballet lovers of all ages, and is a great school holiday activity.

Purchase a ticket to Behind the Scenes and two other Step Inside events as part of a 2019 Season Package and save 25%.

The rehearsal room is a very special place. It’s a place where a lot of knowledge is disseminated and where dancers can hone their craft. It is where roles are built and developed, to the point where they are ready to be put on stage. It’s quite an amazing atmosphere.
