For Ballet Schools
SCHOOL HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS
School Holiday Workshops at West Australian Ballet give dance students the wonderful opportunity to take a class with one of our staff, and take a step inside the studios to watch the professional dancers at work. They’re a great way to keep dancing over the holidays, to further your technique, learn new things and make new friends.
Classes cost $30 for Great Leaps members and $35 for non-members. Parents may stay and watch if desired. Students can book in for one, two or all three days, in the following age groups.
5 – 8 year olds: 9.30am – 11.30am
9 – 12 year olds: 10.45am – 12.45pm
13 – 15 year olds: 2.00pm – 4.00pm
Bookings for the April school holidays will open mid-March.
New in 2014, WAB’s Masterclass Programme will take ballet students to new heights. The programme is designed to assist in student training more deeply than ever before. Over four evening sessions, students will build on their skills and extend their technique through coaching from WAB’s artistic staff, whilst gaining greater understanding of the workings of a professional ballet company. Open to two age groups: 13 – 14 year olds and 15 and above, positions are by audition only.
The audition process has closed for 2014. Information regarding the 2015 programme will be available approximately December 2014.
Here at West Australian Ballet we believe everyone should have the chance to watch outstanding, professional ballet. With the support of Bankwest, we are happy to launch Great Leaps, a free membership programme designed specifically for dance students. If you are between the ages of 5 and 17 and are currently enrolled in a dance school in WA, or if you are a full-time ballet student, you can become a member of Great Leaps. New memberships for 2014 and membership renewals will commence shortly. Application forms will be available here or from your dance teacher.
