MASTERCLASSES

& WORKSHOPS

The 2023 Light The Way Dance Convention is back after the incredible success of the inaugural event in 2022. The convention will once again gather the biggest names in the business where the true legends of Australian dance will teach masterclasses, Q&A industry panels, once-in-a-lifetime performance opportunities and more. This event has strictly limited numbers and workshops are about quality, not quantity. The students will dance in Australia’s newest state-of-the-art theatre Sydney Coliseum and the adjoining West HQ that has the capacity to cater to workshops and shows.
