BALLET dancers from Westfields Sports High School attended a master class run by members of the BalletBoyz, at Sydney Opera House last week.

The four Fairfield students were among 15 high school dancers who learnt about movement, choreography, fitness and got a few audition tips from the British experts.

Year 11 student Josh O'Connor (second from the right) said he appreciated the improvisation which was included in the master class.

"It was really stimulating and really made me think,"Josh said. "I enjoyed learning the different, unexpected ways to move."

The master class program was organised by the arts unit of the Department of Education and Communities.

The unit seeks to provide student performers with current, meaningful arts experiences.
