Alice Springs is renowned for having too much going on! This was certainly true for the Ballet Company and the Australian Dance Academy this week-end . First Saturday 12noon watching The Australian Ballet taking class on stage, then 1.30pm and 7.30pm performances of Coppélia. The Australian Ballet had bumped-out by midnight. Their production truck began the long journey to Darwin for the last two performances of Coppélia. We arrived at the backstage door a few hours later for our class and rehearsals for our performance being staged in 10 days.
