It's judgement day. The third years sit before the company panel and learn their fate - who will be offered a professional contract with the National Ballet Company and who will have to find a new dream?
Auditions for the National Ballet Company have arrived bringing superstitions, old competitive battle lines and the performances that will determine the rest of their lives.
The countdown to the final company auditions has begun when suddenly it becomes a whole new playing field; and Christian and Tara come to a final resolution about their relationship.
Christian and Ollie prepare for Streetbeatz, a major hip-hop competition; Kat prepares to audition for a minor role in Coppelia; and Ben takes a stab at revenge.
In October 2012, Ella Havelka became the first Indigenous dancer to be invited into The Australian Ballet in its 50 year history. It was an announcement that made news headlines nationwide. A descendant of the Wiradjuri people, we follow Ella's inspirational journey from the regional town of Dubbo and onto the world stage of The Australian Ballet. 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.
We find art in the commonplace items we take for granted. This special explores some of the most interesting designers at work today covering furniture, interior design, household items and even cutting edge sneakers.

On the final leg of their tour, the third years are invited to a traditional Indigenous ceremony and return the hospitality by offering a dance class to the local kids. Christian finds he is an unexpectedly good teacher.
The third years are having the time of their lives on the road, but are prioritising fun over performance. Back at the Academy, Kat clashes with the movie's third assistant director, Jamie.
The academy goes a little Hollywood when a film crew uses their building as a location for a new indie movie, and Grace tries to undermine a new relationship to guarantee her position on the tour.
