Behind the Scenes

Join us for a special peek into the daily life of our dancers. Watch as they take class on stage and fine-tune their technique in preparation for a performance. Sydney and Melbourne audiences will also have the opportunity to watch one of our principal couples in an intimate coaching session. 

We are offering Melbourne audiences a special groups price of $5 per ticket to the Behind the Scenes on the Grand Final public holiday (September 29).  Available to groups of 10+, it is the perfect way to spend your public holiday!

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.



$29, $19 for groups of 10+, $9 non-metro towns
