Invitation to the Dance

Front Cover
Collins Publishers Australia, 1989 - Ballet - 199 pages
"Since the Australian Ballet School opened its doors in 1964 it has become the training ground for many of Australia's top dancers. It is not easy to be accepted by the School, and even when students have graduated, there is no guarantee that they will find a position in the Australian Ballet. Nevertheless each year hundreds of nervous young dancers from around the country audition for a place. 'Invitation to the Dance' tells the story of the School, its history, its objectives, its triumphs, and of the work done by Dame Margaret Scott, the School's founder, Director and driving force. There are profiles too of some of the School's brightest stars, among them Marilyn Rowe, Christine Walsh, David Burch, Joanne Michel and Terese Power. The Australian Ballet School has produced many fine dancers in its twenty-five years of existence. 'Invitation to the Dance' is a celebration of the contribution the School has made to dance in Australia."--Book jacket.
