Adopt a Dancer —


Your adopted dancer will come to your studio. Studios >80km outside of Brisbane are regarded as regional for this program.


Adopt a Dancer: $20 per student
($14 booking fee applies)
Minimum 25 students


Dance Studios around Brisbane can apply for a Big Sister or Big Brother dancer from Queensland Ballet. 

For $20 per student (minimum 25 students), your studio can adopt one of our talented dancers, who will travel to you and teach one 90 minute ballet workshop to your young dancers.  Your dancer will inspire and mentor your students, and will happily join you for a Q&A session after their workshop. 

Our Education team will liaise with you to arrange appropriate times for your Adopt a Dancer workshop.  Due to the dancers' schedules, suggested times for the workshops are weeknights or Saturdays.

Other opportunities to engage with your adopted dancer can be arranged throughout the year on a case-by-case basis.  For example, you could bring your students to a performance and we can arrange to meet your dancer after the show.  We are keen to explore how best to keep your students engaged with ballet and aspiring to achieve.
