Students work intensively to develop their skills to the highest artistic and technical standards, and are given the opportunity to perform in Company productions and at other Queensland Ballet events throughout the year.
The training our students receive will prepare them for potential employment with Queensland Ballet, or any other Australian or international company. Daily training is provided by Queensland Ballet’s Artistic and Academy staff and the Company’s associate teachers.
Following the successful completion of the Pre-Professional Program, dancers are ready to audition for Queensland Ballet’s Jette Parker Young Artist Program. Becoming a Young Artist serves as an apprentice entry into Queensland Ballet Company.
All Queensland Ballet Academy programs are overseen by Queensland Ballet’s Artistic Director, Li Cunxin AO, and students enjoy the privilege and benefit of working within a professional environment.
