For Our Community

Providing opportunities for everyone in our community to watch, listen, dream and dance.

 

“It was like a holiday from my suffering. It was like I was living a different life for two hours, it totally carried me away to a beautiful place.”
JUMPSTART PARTICIPANT

 

Over 6,000 people participate in West Australian Ballet’s Community Programs annually, from school children, teachers, fellow artists, volunteers and the general public. These programs provide the opportunity for anyone to learn and be touched by the magic of dance.

 

WAB has a long history of providing people with limited access to the arts the opportunity to share in the magic of live ballet performances. We believe the arts plays a huge role in healing and connecting our community. By working in partnership with various community support organisations we want people experiencing disadvantage to feel welcome, valued and a part of the WA community.

 

Our Community Matinée and Jumpstart Dress Rehearsal programs have brought joy, inspiration and respite to the people most in need.
