After a strange and challenging year that was 2020, we are excited to start fresh in the new year in our After Hours Program in 2021. We look forward to welcoming our families back and welcoming new faces to our program too.
Our program is open to the general public so you don’t have to attend The McDonald College day school to join our After Hours classes. We will continue to offer highly technical training in R.A.D. Classical Ballet for ages 4-18 years, along with an array of other styles including Pre School Ballet, Pre School Dance, Stretch & Conditioning, Pointe Work, Lyrical, Contemporary, Commercial Jazz, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop and Eisteddfod Groups. We will continue to adhere to our COVID Safe Plan in the new year to ensure our environment is as safe as possible.
Auditions for our pre-professional ballet company, Premier State Ballet Youth Company, will be held on Saturday 30 January and Saturday 6 February from 12.00-1.30pm. The company produces either a full length-ballet or a triple bill each year and performs 3 shows at Parramatta Riverside Theatre in September. Students interested to audition must be in Years 8 and up at school and studying classical ballet at a minimum of Intermediate Foundation level. Please contact our office to register your interest and to find out more details.
New families interested in joining our 2021 classes are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest Form (below) we will be in contact with you. Each child is offered a FREE trial lesson so they can try several styles to see which one suits them best.
We look forward to welcoming you all in the new year. If you have any questions in the meantime please don’t hesitate to contact our team. Classes begin on Wednesday 27 January. See you in 2021.
