On point and in town: Melbourne city ballet comes to Coburg
Have you longed to learn ballet or perhaps you used to dance but have since hung up your shoes? Whatever the case may be, there’s never been a better time to take to the barre as Melbourne City Ballet sets down its roots in Coburg.
Having recently relocated from Brunswick at the beginning of 2016 after seeing out its first four years there, Melbourne City Ballet has already made its mark on this pocket of Moreland.
Manager Sean Memery said the team knew they wanted to stay in the local area because of the wonderfully supportive council who is committed to the development of The Arts.
“The residents of Coburg along with council have always been passionate about The Arts and there’s a fantastic arts culture here, so it’s a nice feeling knowing we are going to grow our operation in an area that’s so welcoming and supportive.
With a variety of programmes attracting dancers from all over Victoria, Melbourne City Ballet pride themselves on introducing new faces to Coburg and contributing to the great diversity within the community, with many dancers choosing to call Coburg home.
The partnership with Coburg High School enables young Prima hopefuls to complete a full-time dance and high-school education program. In this way, Melbourne City Ballet is truly an integral part of Coburg with a great influence on the city’s culture.
If you would like to get fit and connect with others, whether you’re more attuned to the dance moves of Angelina Ballerina or Anna Pavlova, you are always welcome to experience the professional and welcoming environment and give it a go at Melbourne City Ballet.
