It might be winter but the recent forecast on Channel 9’s Today Show was particularly warm and uplifting as Principal Artists Amber Scott and Ty King-Wall discuss a new online coaching initiative.

The Telstra Virtual Mentoring Program is pairing promising students in regional areas with dancers from The Australian Ballet during isolation. This unique virtual mentoring experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity for young dancers considering a career in dance to receive one-on-one guidance from Australian Ballet dancers and artistic staff. The program will hopefully ensure young dancers can continue to thrive in these unusual times.
