It’s not every day that you get to spend the day dancing, or being inspired by professional ballerinas, but children at St. Paul’s Lutheran were lucky enough to be visited by members of The Australian Ballet this week.
What made this day even more special was one of the presenters. For 19 year old Brooke Tytherleigh, this visit was a homecoming, as she had attended St. Paul’s herself, from Prep through to Year 7. Since her graduation from high school three years ago, Brooke has danced and studied dance both in Australia and internationally, however now is touring with the ‘Out There’ production, which seeks to bring the world of ballet into school classrooms across the nation.
“It has been wonderful being here at St. Paul’s again, and seeing all the changes that have happened since I was a student here,” Brooke said. “The place looks fantastic now, and it is just great to come back here and to teach all these students about dance, and show them how I live,” she continued. The day-long presentation included movement workshops for the children, and an afternoon demonstration of movement, music and costuming.
