With the infamous Canberra winter settling in, you may be feeling in need of some additional motivation to keep those dancing dreams alive. Look no further than 6P; read on to find out what we have on offer for you!
Choreographic Mentor Program
Does your mind burst with choreography when that song plays? If you've listened to the latest We are 6th Position episode, you'll know you're not the only one!
This winter, we are launching the 6P Choreographic Mentor Program. The aim of the program is to provide an avenue for you to choreograph, teach and stage a small group performance piece, with guidance from a 6P mentor.
Participants can expect the following from the program:
- 5 x one-on-one hours with your mentor
- choreographic workshop
- 4 x hours of complimentary studio hire (Petrie Plaza studio only)
- teaching, staging and performance opportunity in September / October 2019
To keep your out-of-pocket costs as low as possible, 6th Position is subsidising 50% of all participants' fees. The subsidised cost of participating in the Choreographic Mentor Program is $295.
We have four mentee places available. To apply, please write a one page pitch telling us:
- the story / idea you want to express
- the dance style you envisage the piece taking (e.g. jazz, lyrical, ballet, etc)
- why you're an awesome candidate and what you hope to gain from the Choreographic Mentor Program.
Please email your pitch to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than Sunday, 9 June 2019.
Next Pre-Pointe Assessment
Our next Pre-Pointe Assessment will take place on Wednesday, 3 July, at 7.30PM.
Pre-Pointe and Pointe both require enormous commitment and dedication to regular weekly class attendance, additional strength / conditioning training and above all, yourself. Whilst we care deeply about helping you to achieve your dancing dreams, we care even more about your safety. It is important we embark on the pink satin road together, with our eyes wide open. We ask you to please think carefully about whether a commitment to Pre-Pointe / Pointe makes sense for you at this time in your life.
If the answer is a 150% 'yes', then please discuss your potential readiness with your regular ballet teacher, have a read of our Pre-Pointe / Pointe Policy and send your expression of interest to email@example.com by no later than Sunday, 16 June 2019.

Hot off the success of our Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Grade 6 students, the next RAD class on offer at 6P will be Discovering Repertoire: Level 2.
Discovering Repertoire: Level 2 will be available as a enrolment class only (i.e. all fees are paid upfront at the start of term). Class will commence in Term 3 (week of 22 July) and run on Friday evenings (time TBC). The Term 3 fee is $280.
Discovering Repertoire: Level 2 is suitable for ballet students at the elementary and intermediate level (approximately two to four years of recent dance experience). An exam opportunity is available; however, those who wish to learn the syllabus without the pressure of an exam are equally welcome!
