Program Description


The Waverley Council and Russian Ballet International are collaborating to bring the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive to Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. The workshop will take place from January 2-13, 2018, at the beautiful seaside studios hosted by the Waverley Council for this special workshop. A spectacular setting for intensive dancing, the happy and exhausted students will be able to spill out onto the shores of Bondi at the end of their dancing day.

For the first time, Australian dancers will work with current Bolshoi master teachers and faculty from the Academy in Moscow. The classes will include ballet technique, pointe, variations, and character. This rare opportunity will bring today’s unique Russian training in the cultural tradition of classical ballet to Bondi, from one of its oldest and most storied institutions. Founded in 1773, the Bolshoi is a world-renown leader in classical ballet.

In conjunction with the Bolshoi Summer Intensive, Russian Ballet International and the Waverley Council will also offer exciting events for the community, including open lectures, classes, and performances. For more information, please visit
