Aqualand is proud to be a Lead Partner of The Australian Ballet
Australian property development and investment company Aqualand is proud to be a Lead Partner of The Australian Ballet.
This exciting partnership will see Aqualand providing valuable support to The Australian Ballet’s education program – a learning and development initiative that delivers high quality dance education to thousands of children in marginalised schools across Australia each year.
Led by professional dancers and trained educators, The Australian Ballet’s pioneering education program provides workshops for primary and secondary students, as well as creative residencies and performances in schools. Participants learn about collaboration and teamwork, while flexing their creativity and connecting with other students through a shared positive experience.
The program also aligns with the Australian school STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) curriculums using dance to support learning outcomes.
Now in its 11th year, the education program has worked with 700 schools and 388 towns across Australia, and supported more than 120,000 young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and providing learning pro-grams and materials for teachers.
Alex Adams, Head of Sales and Marketing, Aqualand, said Aqualand was proud to become a Lead Partner of The Australian Ballet and equally believed in a strong connection between creative, engaged and vibrant communities.
“At Aqualand, we pride ourselves on pushing creative boundaries and encouraging innovative ways of thinking and doing,” Mr Adams said.
“It is a great privilege to support The Australian Ballet and its education program, an inspiring initiative that shows young Australians and communities how dance can be a pathway to enhance learning.”
Executive Director of The Australian Ballet Libby Christie welcomed Aqualand to The Australian Ballet.
“This partnership reflects our shared vision of fostering learning and development through innovation,” Ms Christie said.
“With Aqualand’s support, we will be able to visit more locations across Australia, thereby increasing the number of students who are impacted by this important program, which ignites life-long interest and learning through a ballet education experience.”
