Behind the Scenes

Join us for a special peek into the daily life of our dancers. From your theatre seat you’ll watch as they take class on stage and fine-tune their technique in preparation for a performance. You’ll also have the exclusive opportunity to watch one of our principal couples in an intimate coaching session. This is a unique, behind-the-scenes look at what it really takes to prepare for a performance.

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.
