We danced, we watched we were enthralled! We even made the local paper!! Here is a short extract from the article (attached below) and some photos of this amazing program.

‘This year The Australian Ballet’s education program is bringing the brand-new initiative STEAMDANCE to Spring Parks Primary School from February 14th to March 21st. Students will have the chance to learn from ballet professionals when The Australian Ballet’s flagship education program visits.

STEAMDANCE is a dance-education approach to learning about STEM subjects including science, technology, engineering and maths. Designed by The Australian Ballet, this innovative and creative initiative supports students learning curriculum subjects through the arts. The STEAMDANCE program is led by The Australian Ballet’s dance education team who are specialist educators and professional dancers.

The program works in partnership with teachers to support the curriculum through a series of workshops and performances in schools to foster critical and creative thinking, literacy, numeracy, individual and cooperative learning and problem solving in students. The Australian Ballet’s schools’ version of The Sleeping Beauty will also be presented by the team, offering a fun and engaging introduction to ballet.’
