ABSA 2016 Youth Ambassadors Matthew Jordan & Eliza Payze.
Masterclasses 2016, held in March, was a great success with the event growing year on year. This year we were excited to welcome Claudia Dean, Shelley Moore and Areti Boyaci to teach our 2016 FABSA Masterclass, where all Senior Masterclass participants were in the running to be selected as our FABSA Youth Ambassadors for 2016.
This year we are proud to announce Eliza Payze and Matthew Jordan as our 2016 FABSA Youth Ambassadors. Being a FABSA Youth Ambasssador is a wonderful role for aspiring young dancers, providing many opportunities from engaging with The Australian Ballet, public performance, hosting events, public speaking, mentoring and more. The talent on the day, across all levels was enormous and really showcased to these teachers the enthusiasm and love, which you all share for dance.
Special mention should be made to all our Masterclasses2016 award winners as follows.
