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. 

In a group? To take advantage of our group rate of $5 per person for groups of 10 or more, please call our customer experience team on 1300 369 741.

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.
