#2023 Regional Community Engagement Tour
Providing life-long learning experiences and access to ballet across Queensland communities.
In 2023, Queensland Ballet’s Education Teaching Artists will visit over 30 locations across regional Queensland, and New South Wales. We are excited to hit the road again and spread the magic of ballet with people of all ages and abilities through in-school and kindergarten workshops and community classes. We invite dancers of all ages, school and studio teachers and seniors to join us for a range of inclusive workshops that will get you moving and inspire your inner creativity. No previous dance experience is required.
Queensland Ballet bring a range of dance programs to regional communities.
From February to October 2023, Queensland Ballet will be touring regional locations through the generous support of Regional Councils offering community engagement dance programs. These programs are delivered by Queensland Ballet education and community teaching artists.

Queensland Ballet thanks The Cory Charitable Foundation
We warmly and gratefully acknowledge the support of The Cory Charitable Foundation, whose generous donations to our Dance for Parkinson’s and Community Engagement Regional Tour enables us to share the benefit and joy of our artform through two of our valuable health and community programs. Queensland Ballet is committed to making dance accessible for as many people as possible - our aim is to enrich lives and contribute to wellness across society. Donations like these have an incredible impact! In the words of just one of our Dance for Parkinson’s participants:
“the impact it has on my physical and mental wellbeing gives me enormous joy and fuel for the coming week…it is so important to my Parkinson’s management program and ongoing wellbeing”.
Our Community Engagement Regional Tour travels across Queensland bringing ballet to the bush for people of all ages and abilities. From tiny sun-drenched towns to bustling regional cities, The Cory Charitable Foundation’s donation enables tours to these regions by providing budget relief and supports the running costs.
