NZSD Foundation Fundraisers

10 & 12 July 2018

Two fundraising events to contribute toward the NZSD Foundation (scholarship fund).


An intimate and inspirational journey of the first Indigenous dancer to be invited into The Australian Ballet in its 50 year history.

Featuring intimate interviews, dynamic dance sequences, and a stunning array of archival material, this moving documentary follows Ella as she explores her cultural identity and gives us a rare glimpse into life as an elite ballet dancer within the largest company in the southern hemisphere.

“Being a ballerina with The Australian Ballet has always been a dream. I feel very privileged to have had the opportunities I’ve had. I can only hope to inspire others within the Aboriginal community to pursue their own dreams by my pursuing mine.” – Ella Havelka
