Coming to the Canberra Theatre Centre on Friday 19 August, the artists will perform pieces from fan favourites such as Black Swan, Don Quixote, Corsaire, Dying Swan, Giselle and more.

Concluding with its signature all-star finale, each artist will compete with one another by showcasing their most impressive solo performances in a captivating final wave-off.
