Kingsley’s Adam Alzaim (19) will debut with WA Ballet, along with Tim Harford (23) and Liam Green (18), in Radio and Juliet at the Quarry Amphitheatre.

The trio spent about four years each with the Subiaco college under director Dawn Weller.

‘They’re three very different dancers. We seem to develop good male dancers in WA,’ Weller said.

Alzaim has recently returned to WA after spending eight months in Korea with Universal Ballet.

He said dance in Korea and Australia was quite different.

‘The range of works the company does here are more diverse than what I experienced over there where it’s more classical,’ Alzaim said.

He said he was looking forward to performing in choreographer Edward Clug’s headline piece at the City Beach venue.

‘The Radio and Juliet music is very exciting, it’s modernised with a different look,’ Alzaim said.

Harford, who names Onegin and The Merry Widow as his favourite ballets, attended the Australian Ballet School and performed with the Australian Ballet Company after graduating from the college, but said he was keen to return home.

Green graduated from the WA Academy of Performing Arts with a Diploma of Dance in 2013 and received a contract with WA Ballet.
