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. 

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.
