The Australian Ballet School presented its annual Summer Season on 7 & 8 December 2019. Over 100 students took to the stage at Arts Centre Melbourne in an enchanting display of talent.
“The highly entertaining program again highlights The Australian Ballet School as not just an esteemed and invaluable institute but as a trusted brand for brightly polished, modestly priced performances.” Simon Parris: Man in Chair
This season was the last with the School for our Level 8 students who graduated on 8 December.
“It was a delight to see both contemporary and classical pieces performed together. As the graduates head off to take up professional ballet contracts, the show represents a rare occasion when Australia’s future ballet stars all dance together.” Sophia Dickinson for Stage Whispers
“The passion of all the young dancers was incredibly evident and compliments are given to all the Australian Ballet School artistic staff involved in training these young dancers for this phenomenal display of classical artistry.” Tisara Pathiranage for Theatre People
