The Australian Ballet’s flagship STEAMDANCE program has gone online to support Australian teachers and students.
Primary and Secondary Schools across the nation can now sign up for inspiring, interactive sessions on dance and STEAM subjects.
STEAMDANCE explores science, technology, engineering, arts and maths through dance delivery, and includes live warm-ups, creative tasks to make dances, movement games, and cool-downs. The sessions will include a Q&A with professional dancers and access to view a professional performance based on themes of resilience.
School groups can choose between viewing a performance of Wilaygu Ngayinybula // Possum’s two minds or Plain Jane. These one hour workshops will also explore the characters, costumes and themes of the selected performance piece.
We invite teachers to book their school groups into the appropriate age group.
Lower Primary (Foundation to Grade 2)
Middle Primary (Grade 3 to 4)
Upper Primary (Grade 5 to 6)
Secondary (Grade 7 to 12)
Where and when
May - July
Each workshop runs for 60 minutes. You will also receive access to an additional recorded 20-minute performance piece.
Students will be able to interact and ask questions via a chat box during the workshop, but will not need to have their video turned on.
The sessions will be broadcast via a Microsoft Teams live event. In most cases the sessions can be accessed easily through your web browser. On some devices you may need to download the free app, but students will not be required to sign up or log in.
The workshops are supported by additional teacher resources linked to the performances.
