Community Engagement activities
Our dance workshops are unique in that we invite local dancers to share the stage with our established stars in masterclasses inspiring the stars of the future. In preparation for our tours, we launch a series of Q&A's with some leading dancers, choreographers, ballet masters, stage designers—all of whom contribute to the magical world of classical ballet and dance. These Q&A's are available for all of our performances as we aim to expand the educational experience of our public.
