AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Former ballet student, Tara Webster, was destined to become one of the top dancers of her generation before a devastating injury crippled her career. Over the last eighteen months she has tried to move on but cannot get over her dream of dancing professionally with the National Ballet Company. In her quest to defy the odds in a near impossible comeback, Tara leaves her life and love behind in Sydney and travels to New York, determined to prove she still has what it takes. But as the rejections pile up, and Tara tears herself apart trying to fit the unrelenting ballet mould, she must learn to find, and trust, her own voice before she loses everything that truly matters in the dogged pursuit of who she thought she was, rather than who she has become.' (Production summary)

Works about this Work

The Passion and Pain of a Dream Stephen Romei , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: The Weekend Australian , 15 April 2017; (p. 15)
'OK, I’m just going to say this right at the start: Dance Academy, a feature film sequel to the successful Australian television series, is better than La La Land. Now that may seem like an extravagant plie (I looked up the words for ballet movements after seeing this movie) and people will disagree with me. Even Faye Dunaway thought La La Land should have won a best picture Oscar.' (Introduction)
Dance Academy Review – a Pleasantly Soapy Dance Drama for the IGeneration Luke Buckmaster , 2017 single work column
— Appears in: The Guardian Australia , 5 April 2017;
'The feature adaptation of ABC TV’s hugely successful series for teens is less Flashdance and more Black Swan meets The Baby-Sitters Club.'
