Adults Performance Group
"Gala Show" 

 Dear all Adult dancers,


As we enter the 2nd half of the year means “showtime”. After our highly successful Gala shows in the past, this year we are planning a fantastic new show for 2023. 


The show will be held at the wonderfully big (500 seat) Alexander Theatre Monash University Clayton Campus, 48 Exhibition Walk, Clayton VIC 3800 on Monday 11th December 2023.

Our Adults bring so much to our school and for the students who would like to perform, this will give you the opportunity to show what you achieved in your dance studies.


Our production is designed to give dancers of all levels valuable performance and production experience and will bring together dancers from both our children’s and adults schools, from the ages of four to eighty-four, in a celebration of dance and its ability to unite and bring joy.


We suggest adults having at least one year current and consistent training if wishing to join the production groups.


Rehearsals are always conducted with the utmost professionalism but are also enjoyed for the social aspect, with many dancers enjoying regular post-rehearsal drinks and gatherings.


The 2023 show will be around one hour long and show a diverse cross sections dance that will entertain and delight. 



- Adults Ballet  

Beginner and Advanced Adults ballet students will become 'Gems' - an expression of beauty, glamour, and extravagance. 

Set to the wonderful rich music of Chopin's Etudes no 10.

Please find the music link

Kalman aims to choreograph and create a vibrant group piece based on the ballet vocabulary. 

- Adults Contemporary

Kalman will also be creating a contemporary adults work for advanced students. 

This will be an Earthy bound piece showing connection to nature.  

By Moondog - Bird's Lament

- Adults Character (Spanish)
Elena will be creating an engaging Adults character piece reflective of traditional Hungarian dance for the Picnic scene.

We would love as many dancers to be a part of this as possible, with the choreography to cater to the needs and ability of each dancer’s level.

We would like you to try and make all possible rehearsals, so as to not make the students that do attend all rehearsals go back and re-teach things for those who have missed numerous rehearsals.

We also strongly suggest attending your regular classes during the week to maintain technique and strength.
