Behind the Scenes

Ever wondered what a professional ballet class is like? Watch from your theatre seat as our dancers go through their morning training routine, with commentary by artistic staff, then sit in as our top dancers rehearse for an upcoming production.

In our upcoming event in Brisbane, join us on 26 February as Ballet Mistress Elizabeth Toohey coaches Principal Artists Kevin Jackson and Ako Kondo in a pas de deux from Wayne McGregor’s explosive modern ballet Chroma, part of our Volt program.

The rehearsal room is a very special place. It’s a place where a lot of knowledge is disseminated and where dancers can hone their craft. It is where roles are built and developed, to the point where they are ready to be put on stage. It’s quite an amazing atmosphere.
