For Ballet Students
SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS
School Holiday Workshops at West Australian Ballet give dance students aged 4 to 15 the wonderful opportunity to take a class with one of our staff, and take a behind the scene’s look at a professional ballet company. They’re a great way to keep dancing over the holidays, to further your technique, learn new things and make new friends.
