True Grit

For many years, the Sydney Opera House has been creating programs that bring the community together, regardless of background and ability levels. After community consultation, we partnered with The Australian Ballet and Lifestart to launch True Grit, our first-ever accessibility program targeted specifically to young adults. True Grit uses dance to grow employment skills, as well as to develop the participants' self-confidence and general well-being. Due to lockdown restrictions, the program went online while maintaining a high participant engagement and satisfaction.
