QUEENSLAND BALLET WORKSHOP

On Tuesday 12 May, the Queensland Ballet Education Squad visited Holy Spirit to run a Ballet workshop for some of our Year 9 and 10 dance students. The workshop consisted of a series of basic ballet barre exercises in addition to a journey through the Romantic, Classical and Modern ballet eras. Students were taught repertoire from each of these eras as well as the social and historical contexts which influenced the evolution of ballet. The students gained a wealth of knowledge and technique from the workshop.
