HEAD OF BOARDING
Inaugural Position

An exciting opportunity to start with a ‘blank canvas’ has arisen for an outstanding and inspiring Head of Boarding with proven boarding experience to lead The Australian Ballet School’s boarding programme. This exciting new position commences at the end of term 3, 2015, with a view to commencing boarding for students in 2016.

POSITION DESCRIPTION

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION


 

I joined The Australian Ballet School 37 years ago and after graduation went on to dance as a Principal Artist with The Australian Ballet and as Senior Principal with the English National Ballet. Now, after many years committed to vocational education and training, I am thrilled to lead the School into the future, following in the footsteps of the three visionary leaders who came before me. For fifty years The Australian Ballet School has produced dancers of the highest calibre for our parent company, The Australian Ballet, state companies and leading dance companies throughout the world.

The School offers an exciting, unique and creatively driven eight-year programme that provides the very best in vocational and educational training. Our holistic approach ensures all students have a broad-based, comprehensive education, which equips them to pursue vocations, not only in dance and the allied arts, but in areas outside dance. Student Health and Welfare continues to be an important part of the School and through project assemblé! we are aiming to ensure students are able to live in a safe and secure environment when they move to Melbourne to follow their dream.

I look forward to a future of excellence and artistry for our hard working and talented students as we continue to enhance our training programme and strive to advance the art of ballet in Australia.

WE NEED YOUR HELP
The Australian Ballet School is an autonomous, not-for-profit organisation that auditions and accepts students from all over urban and rural Australia and overseas based solely on talent and artistic potential, regardless of their financial circumstances.

The School currently receives 38% of its income from the Federal Government. The remainder is raised through fees, philanthropic support and performances. Fees are kept to a minimum to ensure that no student is disadvantaged due to financial circumstances so they do not cover the full costs associated with training. As a result, we need your help.
