“Newcastle Ballet Theatre reflects the people that Principals Rider and Kristy are: nurturing and professional. Having a successful professional career themselves, they not only understand the physical technique needed for a professional career but also the mental strength that is equally important. 

I wouldn’t be the dancer or person I am today, if it hadn’t been for their wealth of knowledge and continual guidance.“
