Selection Experience

While Queensland Ballet Academy's world-class facilities are based at Kelvin Grove State College, the Foundation Program is open to students from across the Brisbane metropolitan area. Acceptance into the program is through a Selection Experience event, or by invitation.

Selection Experience

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 commencing a professional ballet training pathway.

Participation at an after school 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.
- Observing the Academy's older students taking class in the studio.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
