In-School Activities

Bringing dance to your classroom

 

Help share the world of dance with your students by bringing West Australian Ballet to your school or studio. Learning directly from our highly-skilled teaching artists will inspire, engage, excite and challenge any misconceptions. Whether they learn about the process of putting on a production and the life of a dancer in a Ballet Unveiled Presentation, or learn the physical elements of dance in a Ballet Moves Workshop, there’s an affordable activity for all year levels. Which one of your students will be the next prima ballerina, choreographer, costume designer or enthusiastic audience member?

 

Both activities can be organised either as an incursion or excursion, and both can be tailored to suit educational interests at primary or secondary levels. Teacher resources are available for these activities.

 

All our sessions are conducted by WAB’s highly-skilled teaching artists, all of whom possess current Working With Children Checks.
