Auditions for 2015

Applications for Junior Program 2015 will be open soon. Applicants will be required to submit a short video of class work and details of previous training. Short-listed applicants will then be invited to audition in late November, 2014.

Full details of how to submit an application will be posted on this website in due course.

Queensland Ballet’s Junior Program is designed to supplement the ballet training which talented young dance students receive from community dance schools and teachers.

Participants are given the opportunity to further develop their skills by working with a group of their peers under the supervision of Queensland Ballet’s Artistic staff, associate teachers and when possible, guest teachers.

Three levels of the Junior Program are offered, based on age. Each Program is open to up to 20 students.

Junior Program 1 (JP1):  ages 11 - 12 years
Junior Program 2 (JP2):  ages 13 - 14 years
Junior Program 3 (JP3):  ages 15 - 16 years

The entry age is used as a guide when students successfully audition to enter the Program. Each student is then regularly assessed and placed into a class that will suit his or her level of training, so that full benefit may be gained from the Program.

Students are offered the opportunity, when possible, to observe Company class and / or rehearsal as an adjunct to their Program, and will be given first consideration when the Company requires juvenile performers for a production. However, performance opportunities are not guaranteed, and casting will be at the discretion of the Artistic Director and / or choreographer.

Classes are held during school terms, on every Tuesday (JP1 and  JP2) and every Wednesday (JP3) from 4.30pm to 6.15pm, in Queensland Ballet’s studios at Thomas Dixon Centre in Brisbane’s West End.
