Adopt a Dancer

Studios and their students have the chance to form a very special connection with dancers from the Company through the Adopt-a-Dancer program.

Tailored workshops, up-close and personal conversations and options for specialised coaching and wardrobe/production insights provide a unique and memorable way for students to find their role models. Students will have the opportunity to share their studio with the stars of Queensland Ballet and to learn about the magical world of the ballet. Our dancers will immerse themselves in the life of the studio whilst students, teachers and parents hear about and learn all the tips and tricks from a practicing professional artist.

Welcoming your adopted Queensland Ballet dancer will assist your students to be leaps and bounds ahead and to show them what you can become when you reach for the stars.
