What s on this week...
BLAYKE Sheean and Luke Ward have
been selected for a position in the Junior
and Senior Cecchetti Scholars Program
in Melbourne in 2016.
The duo were selected from Cecchetti
Ballet students from across Victoria af-
ter auditioning for these places.
Their selection caps off a fantastic year
during which both received 100% for
their respective ballet exams.
The Cecchetti Scholars Program con-
ducts classes with principal ballet danc-
ers and leading teachers, and provides
the opportunity for students to learn
and develop their ballet.
Blayke and Luke have been with the
Bass Coast Ballet School since they were
pre-school students, studying with a va-
riety of teachers and learning the many
styles of dance that the school offers.
Bass Coast Ballet School is run by a
volunteer parent committee as a not for
profit school, and has grown consistent-
ly over the last decade with the number
of teaching staff employed increasing
from two to seven, as the demand for its
classes has grown.
The Bass Coast Ballet School would
like to wish Blayke and Luke all the best
for 2016 and beyond!
