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: $25
Adopt a Dancer Performance Plus: $47 ($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 $25 per student (minimum 25 students), your studio can adopt one of our talented dancers, who will travel to you and teach one 60 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.
The Adopt a Dancer package also includes two additional workshops with one of our EdSquad dancers: Pilates and Stretching, and Performance Technique.
Our Education Manager will liaise with you to arrange appropriate times for your three Adopt a Dancer workshops. Due to the dancers' schedules, suggested times for the workshops are weeknights or Saturdays.
Adopt a Dancer Performance Plus
As an Adopt a Dancer studio, you are also eligible for reduced ticket prices to a 2014 ballet in Brisbane.
Your group may attend one of our performances, such as Coppélia for $25 per student.
This would bring your total Adopt a Dancer Performance Plus package to just $47 per student ($25 Adopt a Dancer + $25 Ballet ticket; minimum 25 students; $14 booking fee applies).
Please liaise with our Education Manager directly to arrange your tickets. We will endeavour to arrange tickets to a performance when your dancer is cast, so that your young dancers can see their dancer light up the stage.
