Ausdance ACT Masterclass with Victorian State Ballet 

Ausdance ACT is excited to announce a fantastic event!

We will host a ballet masterclass with VSB Principal artists Elise Jacques & Tynan Wood, covering basic centre barre, pirouettes and centre practice steps of allegro.

After the class, the two artists will perform a short pas de deux from 'Beauty & the Beast' Act 2 of the show, which the company will present at the Canberra Theatre on the same night. The event will conclude with a Q&A session.

This is a unique opportunity for intermediate and advanced ballet students aged 15+, independent artists, and adults with technical expertise in Ballet. Take advantage of this fantastic chance to enhance your ballet and performance skills on the enchanting theatre stage!
