On Monday 30th May, we were lucky to have four students from the Australian Ballet Ensemble – Visiting Schools Program: Out There – come to visit us. Individually our classes were taught basic ballet dance moves. We had to remember different positions both in the way our body was positioned as well as the position in the room. Our teachers showed us great skills and strength in the different dance moves. You have to be very fit and agile to be a Ballet dancer.
After lunch, all the Ballet students performed a short version of Sleeping Beauty. They had amazing costumes with each person performing multiple characters. We could see some of the dance moves they taught us in the workshop in the performance. All in all, it was a great day for all students who attended. Thank you to the Australian Ballet. We really enjoyed our time.
