Junior Program —

Auditions for 2015

Brisbane
Sunday 23 November
Programs 1-3, Students 11-16 years.

Applications for 2015 will be open soon.

Queensland Ballet’s Junior Program is designed to supplement the training that 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.

Each Program is open to up to 20 students. Classes include classical ballet, pointe work and male technique.

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

Junior Program 2013

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

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.

Classes are held over four terms per year, on every Tuesday from 4.30pm to 6.15pm (JP 1 and 2) and every Wednesday from 4.30pm to 6.15pm (JP3), in Queensland Ballet’s studios at Thomas Dixon Centre in Brisbane’s West End. Classes generally have live piano accompaniment.
