True Grit: Accessible dance workshop

16 April 19 September

Only a few places left!

True Grit is an accessible dance workshop held in partnership with the Australian Ballet, the Sydney Opera House, and Lifestart.

This program is a part of the Sydney Opera House access program legacy which has sought to bring dance to young people with disabilities in an empowering, developmental and self-determined way. 

True Grit focuses on supporting young people with learning and physical challenges (17 to 25 years) to become the next generation of creatives and audiences, through choreographic and performative dance activities centred on choreographic craft, the company, creative careers and the world, to build the skills needed to contribute to a bright and creative future.

Jasmin Dwyer, Program Manager Education and Outreach, The Australian Ballet

We are excited to be offering True Grit again in 2024, starting Tuesday 16 April. 

Sessions occur on a Tuesday afternoon – usually each fortnight at Danks Studio in Waterloo. Participants can join in person or online. This year we have added sessions on the theory of dance and aspects of production such as lighting and costumes. The program culminates with some workshops and the final performance at the Sydney Opera House on Thursday 19 September. 

Lifestart will support participants to engage in the program and to set personal goals. 

We have a few places left!
