QB Petit Pointers Teacher Training Program


Queensland Ballet’s early years dance program for children aged 1 – 5 years introduces movement through play, enabling young children to explore and interpret the world around them, and to physically make meaning of their everyday.

Teacher Training Program

#QB Petit Pointers

QB Petit Pointers is underpinned by the early years learning framework and evidence-based research, providing a program to complement and enhance child development.

QB Petit Pointers includes three levels: 

  • Level 1   1 – 2 years 
  • Level 2   2 – 3 years 
  • Level 3   3 – 4 years

The 10-week courses are structured to enable class participants of similar stages in physical, emotional and cognitive development to achieve a range of objectives and core skills through real-world lesson themes, enhanced by the magic of ballet.

Set within a framework of storytelling, exploration and artistic play, QB Petit Pointers encourages personal expression and development of confidence. The program is inclusive for all children and is created to easily adapt to any cohort. At the end of each course, children will have successfully developed some of the early foundation skills of ballet.
