Queensland Ballet Academy

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

Our Academy's aim is to provide a clear career pathway and to produce young dancers whose talents and abilities are in demand throughout Australia and internationally.

The Academy offers world-class training programs for gifted students from 10 years of age, as well as masterclasses, workshops and an annual Summer School. All programs are supervised by Artistic Director Li Cunxin and Academy Director Christian Tátchev, and supported by our highly-acclaimed coaching team.

Entry to programs is by invitation or audition, ensuring a learning environment committed to technical and artistic excellence. The developing talents of our young dancers are showcased in standalone performances and at many prestigious events, as well as within Company productions.
