Livestreamed Workshops

Steamdance Online

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. Our standard format supports STEAM outcomes generally, or you may choose a specific theme below.
