Alumnus -  Benjamin Anderson

“I feel extremely lucky and privileged to be a student at Newcastle Ballet Theatre.

Their professional, enthusiastic, and supportive teachers have been great role models and mentors to me, and their passion for Ballet is infectious.

Not only have they taken my love of Ballet as seriously as I have, but have helped me achieve my dream of dancing full-time with the Australian Ballet School.

I will be forever grateful for their dedication to developing and refining my technique and encouraging me to be the best dancer and student I can be.

I look forward to making them proud in Melbourne in 2016 and beyond.”
