Queensland Ballet Academy

Developing the artists of the future is central to Queensland Ballet’s strategic vision. 

Queensland Ballet Academy is a world-class ballet training organisation offering a comprehensive industry-aligned, professional career pathway producing young dancers whose talents and abilities are in demand throughout Australia and internationally.

Entry to all programs is by invitation or audition, ensuring a learning environment committed to technical and artistic excellence, positioned alongside the ethos of wellbeing.

Jette Parker Young Artist Program is one of the leading ballet development programs in the Asia Pacific, fostering the talents of dancers at the start of their professional careers.

Pre-Professional Program is a full-time, final training year offering young dancers the real-world preparation they require before joining a professional company.

Senior Program is a professional training course for school-aged ballet students. This unique program provides students with the opportunity to experience the highest quality, comprehensive ballet training while also pursuing academic studies across Years 10 – 12 with our partner school, Kelvin Grove State College.

An extension to the partnership with Kelvin Grove State College is currently being developed. Once realised, Queensland Ballet Academy will welcome students from Years 7 – 9, completing the training continuum from preparatory development through to a professional career.
