Community Dance Experience
The Sydney Opera House, together with Dance for Parkinson’s Australia and in partnership with Mark Morris Dance Group’s Dance for PD program, presents the third session in our new initiative: Series 3 Focus: Australian Ballet.
Community Dance for Parkinson’s Class with a special Behind the Scenes event
Date: Wednesday 17 May
Cost: Free (with additional $10 ticket for optional Behind the Scenes event)
This series of high quality Dance for Parkinson’s class’s links to the work of specific companies in residence at Sydney Opera House. Each series’ community class curriculum is creatively built around the dance works and concepts that form the basis of the company’s repertory. The classes are offered to people with Parkinson’s, their families, dance teachers, friends and care partners. All levels of ability and mobility welcome; no prior dance experience is required.
In our first series of 2017 The Australian Ballet Education will present a workshop on The Nutcracker: The Story of Clara focusing on the music, design and choreographic themes of the production through a fun and rhythmic class.
Participants are invited to come early before class and take advantage of a special $10 ticket offer to attend a Behind the Scenes performance by The Australian Ballet, where the world of ballet is opened up and there is an excerpt of performance by The Australian Ballet principals.
After the performance teachers are invited to attend a translation session facilitated by Dance with Parkinson’s instructors. Instructors and Health Professionals are also invited to an additional event on Monday, 15 May.
