Peninsula Ballet Ensemble students got a unique insight into the life of a professional dance company recently when the Sydney Dance Company’s teaching artists held a workshop at the school’s Somerville studio. The workshop was designed to support the students’ experience of the company's latest touring work, Bonachela/Nankivell/Lane, and allowed them to experience the process used by the company to create and perform new and original movement.
PBE teacher and former company principal and soloist Andrea Mercurio said: “The workshop provided students with an opportunity to learn about the creative process in their own space with an experience that was real and personal. It also provided students with inspiration to continue exploring, growing and achieving.”
The PBE is a not-for-profit community performing arts school staffed by a team of highly qualified and talented teachers who all have extensive dance and performance experience. The school offers classes in ballet, jazz, tap, acrobatics and drama using internationally-recognised Cecchetti Ballet Australia and Australian Teachers of Dance Limited training methods.
