Pre-Professional Program and Associate Program classes have been suspended until further notice. 


2. Can I watch or wait for my child’s class to finish in the Academy building? 

No, we are respectfully asking all parents to drop off and pick up their children from outside our building’s reception entrance. We appreciate your cooperation on this matter.  

 

3. I have paid to attend an event that has been cancelled. Will I be refunded? 

Yes, all registrants to cancelled events hosted by Queensland Ballet will be refunded. You do not need to contact us for this, we will process your refund within 30 days. If you have not received a refund by then, please contact us.

6. Am I allowed inside Queensland Ballet’s buildings? 

All visitors are expected to sanitise their hands before entering our buildings. The Academy building at Kelvin Grove State College is currently experiencing a shortage in hand sanitiser, so we recommend bringing your own to be safe, and using the facilities to wash your hands upon arrival and prior to exiting the premises.  

We respectfully request you do not enter our buildings if you:

  • Are awaiting results from COVID-19 testing

If your child has fallen ill at home, seek medical advice and email to inform us that your child will not be attended class via academyabsence@queenslandballet.com.au
