This is a great opportunity for young women to develop their skills in soccer and/or dance and enjoy a rare chance to meet and work with some of Australia’s most outstanding professional dancers and soccer players. This aspirational sports/arts program will provide insight into the integral part that women play in sport and the arts in Australia and to celebrate their achievements.

The participants will gain a behind-the-scenes look at the development of an acclaimed dance project and develop a deeper understanding of the processes and professional skills to create these performances, whether on the field or in the theatre.

CHAMPIONS is a dance show at the intersection of dance and soccer; the subcultures and the elite physical fitness and training. To develop the show, the dancers, a cast of twelve of Australia’s best female dancers, were put through rigorous daily training drills with a soccer coach and worked with players from the Western Sydney Wanderers women’s team and members of the Matildas.
