For Ballet Schools



After a successful first year in 2014, WAB is proud to present a bigger and better Masterclass Programme in 2015. The programme gives talented students eight masterclasses throughout the year with ongoing tutoring from our artistic team and international guest teachers, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at our rehearsal process. The programme is open to students aged 13 to 17 (students must be turning 13 – 18 in 2015 i.e born between 1 January 1998 and 31 December 2002).

School Holiday Workshops at West Australian Ballet give dance students the wonderful opportunity 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. Parents may stay and watch if desired or help themselves to tea and coffee in our heritage foyer whilst they wait. Please note, this is not a “drop off & leave” activity, parents or guardians must stay on premises for the duration.
