As part of the 2017 touring schedule, MBC will be giving over 50 Masterclasses throughout Australia. Our workshops and Masterclasses have also been designed to be accessible to people of all ages and levels of experience. The Company also collaborates with venues and local schools across Australia to assess the level of demand and caters to each community accordingly. For example, many locations have established dance schools with senior students and teachers who can benefit greatly from our masterclasses in contemporary and classical techniques, and also from our choreographic workshops which provide an opportunity to experience new and innovative dance techniques. Students are given the opportunity to be taught by some of Australia's foremost artists and teachers, and to learn current repertoire, gaining further performance appreciation - this strategy has proved also to increase audience numbers.

MBC also has an extensive junior program which has achieved much success across Australia. Our Fairy Ballet classes are especially popular with very young children: children may come dressed as a fairy, a princess, a prince or ballerina and be taught by a MBC dancer in a dance class incorporating basic classical ballet positions, locomotion work, mime and improvisation.

Winter School 2017

Following the success of the Winter School held in 2015, MBC is very pleased to announce that there will be a 2017 Winter School at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.

Senior dancers from the MBC and several guest teachers will be running the masterclass for students aged from 8 - 20 years. These masterclasses take students on a choreographic journey through new techniques in Classical Ballet, Pointe, and Contemporary Dance. Students will thus have a unique opportunity to explore the repertoire of MBC. The winter-school will conclude with a student studio performance.

MBC In Association with the Hawthorn Arts Centre

MBC is also very proud to be based at the recently redeveloped Hawthorn Arts Centre. The Hawthorn Arts Centre is a heritage-listed building that embodies both elegance and grandeur, with an intriguing mix of contemporary and traditional design - which is a good fit for MBC as the Company is both steeped in tradition but also mixed with a strong sense of innovation. Since 2014, MBC and the Hawthorn Arts Centre have worked in partnership to produce three programs - Divenire, Lucidity and Archè. MBC is keen to further develop this relationship in 2016 - and indeed to further establish the Hawthorn Arts Centre as our ‘home’ theatre in Melbourne.
