At this young age, in place of a formal audition, entry into the program is based on the outcome of a specially designed pre-selection process to identify suitability for ballet training . Pre-selection Experience events are scheduled at least twice per year to allow for new enrollments and children are encouraged to attend subsequent events, should they not be initially accepted.
Participation at an after school Pre-selection Experience event involves:
- An after school visit to Queensland Ballet Academy to tour the facilities and meet some of the teachers.
- Participation in a group session where children will be guided through easy-to-follow activities, examples of which are provided in the video below.
- Observing the Academy's older students taking class in the studio.
