Our ballet classes are broken into four levels:
Foundations and Beyond - Ballet Foundations course graduates

Advanced Ballet Enchainements - Intermediate/Advanced

More advanced levels move into developing your technique, co-ordination and rhythm through longer and more challenging sequences including adage, pirouettes and allegro combinations.

What's on

Queensland Ballet offers other one-off dance workshops and events throughout the year.

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.
