Spend summer with ballet’s best.

Summer School offers dancers aged 11 to 18 years the chance to further their training in a culture of collaboration and excellence.

Classes include classical ballet technique, pointe work, repertoire, character dance, contemporary dance; male technique and pas de deux (subject to number of male participants). Students also participate in informative discussions with Queensland Ballet company dancers, physiotherapy & nutrition professionals and the week concludes with a presentation for family and friends.

“My daughter travelled from New Zealand to attend your Summer School and LOVED it. The training set her up perfectly for competing in the Finals at the Youth America Grand Prix in NYC. Summer School gave my daughter the confidence to push herself so much harder, and we’ve been thrilled with the results.”
