    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 16: Amrita

    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 16: Amrita

    Here it is... episode 16 of the We are 6th Position podcast, and the final one for the 2019 season.

    Today, we are sharing Amrita's story. At a time where our Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, has decided the arts is not worthy of federal representation; the release of our season finale has been serendipitous. The arts - dance at a community level - has changed the course of Amrita's life, and we have no doubt, there are many others for whom dance and the arts has held a pivotal role in their lives. This episode holds a special story of hope; it you are on a path of recovery (physical, mental, emotional or otherwise), then this episode is dedicated to you.

    We are 6th Position podcast will return in 2020. In the meantime, you can listen back over all 16 episodes and check out our We are 6th Position Facebook album so see where it all started!

    We wish a safe and happy festive break - catch you on the flip side!

    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 15: Taking a Ballet Exam as an Adult

    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 15: Taking a Ballet Exam as an Adult

    Starting ballet - or anything new, for that matter - is daunting enough, as it is. For starters, you have to start at the very beginning, a place most of us haven't seen since childhood; there is this thing called 'coordination' you have to grapple with while attempting to do so with 'grace'; and on top of that, whilst cathartic, dancing as an adult can also be an emotionally loaded experience and we sometimes unexpectedly come face to face with our inner demons (hello, depression and anxiety, my old friends).

    In other words, dance as an adults is hard; physically, mentally and emotionally. Yet, we come back to it, over and over again because despite everything, there is an in describable JOY we can gain from dance, when we open ourselves to the experience.

    So, given the hard-earned joy of dance, why on earth would nine adults put themselves through the not-so-light-hearted experience of undergoing a ballet exam?

    That's exactly what we set out to discover in Episode 15 of We are 6th Position, Taking a Ballet Exam as an Adult. We sit down with five of our adults - Ami, Casey, Cecilia, Gino and Mariette - who begun the learning the Royal Academy of Dance Grade 6 syllabus in January 2018 and sat the exam in May and July 2019. For most, a highlight of this experience was sharing this experience with other adults only - a perk of being an adult exclusive dance studio! Fun fact: the average age of our exam entrants was 44.

    Grab a cuppa and settle in to hear this frank and no frills discussion of taking a ballet exam as an adult. Click play or download to hear their story.

    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 14: Julia

    Welcome to Episode 14 of We are 6th Position! For this episode, we talk to Julia (you may recognise her voice from Episode 13: Making Friends), a senior secondary school teacher who realised she needed to practice the things she was teaching and preaching to her students and team. One day, Julia realised for all the times she would tell her students to 'take chances' or encourage her team to 'refill your tanks', she had yet to do it for herself.

    Click play or download to hear Julia's story and how in taking a chance with ballet, she found her mental and emotional fuel.

    We are 6th Position Podcast – Episode 13: Making Friends

    Let's be frank: making friends as an adult can be an excruciating social experience. By the time we reach adulthood, most of us have established social circles or are quite comfortable with our own company, thank you very much.

    Sometimes though, new friendships can be found in unexpected places with the most unexpected people. For Julia and Rebecca - two individuals with very different histories - this is exactly what happened. Both women embarked on their separate dance journeys with every expectation of dancing and no expectation of finding this special friendship they now share.

    So, ladies, please tell us all your secrets! Click play or download to hear the story of Julia and Rebecca's friendship.
