Event description

Description

The Australian Ballet Education team are coming to Darwin in partnership the Darwin Entertainment Centre, with a focus on school aged students with disability.

The program includes both practical dance workshops and a performance of Coppèlia at the Darwin Entertainment Centre. The program is designed to ensure all students can participate. Due to the program’s inclusive design, student needs are addressed in the class as they work on choreographic movement.


WORKSHOPS

  • Max 20 students per session
  • Aimed at school aged students
  • Workshops are taught by members of the Education team who are professional dancers and specialist educators
  • Workshops are designed to include all students in an accessible and inspiring way.
  • You can expect to move, have fun and be provided with many options as well as learning about the characters, costumes and story of Coppèlia that you will see in the performance.

Workshop 1: 11am

Begin with a dance workshop 11am to 11.45: This will be taught at a slower pace and is suitable for students with a high level of needs that may need to attend with their carer. This will be followed by watching the performance at 12.30pm-1pm


Workshop 2: 12.30pm

Begin by watching the performance 12.30pm-1pm. This is followed by a dance workshop 1.30pm to 2.15pm: This is suitable for students that work more independently and who need less support from a carer, but will still be suitable for those who may need to attend with their carer.


PERFORMANCE 12:30pm-1pm

Either before or after your workshops, you and your child are invited are to attend an accessible performance of Coppèlia designed for students. The performance is 30 minutes long and features 4 dancers and multiple characters. There is music but it is not especially loud and there are no unexpected loud sound effects.
