Our 33rd Morning Melodies went a little longer than expected but it was exciting to see very bright eyes backstage and very excited ballet students preparing to step out in front of their audience.
We try not to rush them and engage them in all parts of the theatre which takes such a lot of concentration and energy.
They were all really good backstage waiting for their turn to dance and be dressed in their costumes. It is very exciting for them to see their own ballet teachers in their own costume, with make-up and headpieces. They are always very surprised and can't take their eyes off them.
Congratulations and well done to everyone and thank you to Araluen's fantastic technicians Greg Thompson and Daniel Sawyer for their expertise and showing our young dancers in the best light.
