#Program details

What is an online school workshop?

Queensland Ballet's Online School Workshops are delivered in three parts:

Workshop video/s - this is a 40min instructional video led by QB Education Teaching Artists, available for 3 months unlimited use on QB's LearningHUB portal via Thinkific. Each video includes practical exercises, analysis and discussion activities.

Pre and post workshop resources - this document will be available for download in the QB LearningHUB portal and provides teachers with suggested pre and post workshop activities to enhance student engagement and understanding.

Live stream Q&A - this is a 30min Q&A between a member of the QB Education Team and the school/kindergarten. This will be arranged individually with each school/kindergarten.

Why is an online school workshop valuable?

Online school workshops are an accessible and affordable offering for schools/kindergartens that provides students with a unique and valuable opportunity to engage with ballet. Once purchased the workshop/s are available for 3 months unlimited use, enabling schools to deliver the workshop package over multiple lessons for as many students and/or class groups as possible. The workshops are specially created to facilitate an in-depth learning experience that are complementary to the Australian Curriculum Dance subject and Senior Dance Curriculum and Early Years Learning Framework.

"The QB Online Workshops are a wonderful tool to bring real world context into the classroom in a safe and engaging way. The combination of making and reflecting activities fits well with ACARA and the new QLD Dance Syllabus. I would highly recommend them to any dance teacher."
