Local dancers will have the chance to take part in a workshop with Melbourne’s finest ballet dancers.

As part of the Alice in Wonderland ballet show, being presented by the Melbourne City Ballet, the performers will be holding a workshop tomorrow at 3pm.

Melbourne City Ballet are providing opportunities for young dancers seeking to experience being a part of a live ballet production.

Young dancers across the country have the opportunity to register to be part of the magic of this wonderful production.

There are various roles that need to be filled for this production as part of their Alice in Wonderland show they are performing on Thursday night at the Civic Centre.

Melbourne City Ballet are predominately looking for dancers, both boys and girls, aged between 8 and 18 years old.  

Basic ballet skills and knowledge are required. 

“The workshop is an hour long class ran by some of our Company Artists,” a spokeswoman from the company said.

“In the workshop, the dancers will do a short ballet class and will then learn a piece from the show. 

“At the conclusion of the workshop, a handful of lucky dancers will be chosen to perform that same piece in the show that night.”

She said locally there had been a lot of interest for the workshop.

“We have had lots of interest by dancers not only in Broken Hill but at all of our other locations around Australia and New Zealand,” she said.

Auditions will include participation in our community workshops which are $10 per head. 

Workshop will take place at 3pm, tomorrow at the Broken Hill Civic Centre.
