The June/July issue of Dance Australia has hit the shelves and it’s bursting with fantastic features!
In this year’s special audition feature, we’ve caught up with professional dancers from a range of disciplines – ballet, contemporary, commercial and musical theatre – about their experiences auditioning and their tips for success. We’ve got advice about auditioning for full time dance courses and tertiary studies, and auditioning by video. Plus there’s a calendar of audition dates for 2020 dance courses.
In this issue we’re thrilled to introduce you to the winner of the Emerging Female Classical Choreographer Initiative, Amelia Drummond. She can’t wait to start working with The Australian Ballet, as part of her prize, writes Karen van Ulzen.
What constitutes a "ballet body"? Dancer and teacher Catherine Wells has written an impassioned call for a new definition... one that frees ballet from the shackles of physical uniformity. We're proud to include this important opinion piece in both our print magazine and online.
Ahead of the Bolshoi Ballet’s performance in Brisbane, Dr Irina Kuzminsky reports on her own tour… to the Bolshoi’s home in Moscow.
Queensland Ballet has established a relationship with one the most sought-after classical choreographers in the world – Liam Scarlett. Denise Richardson got the lowdown from the man himself in our June/July issue.
And Sally Clark caught up with Aussie triple threat Ainsley Melham about what it’s like to perform the lead role in Aladdin… on Broadway. Plus we’ve got a Q&A with Bloch Australasia’s national manager, Sandie Windsor-Richards, competition results from the Youth America Grand Prix, Cecchetti, Alaina Haines and AICD Houston… and more!
