Early Years Dance

At Queensland Ballet, we firmly believe that ballet enriches lives. 

We know creative movement in the early years is a beautiful way to explore the world of magic and storytelling. 

This introduction to movement through play, enables young children to explore and interpret the world around them, and to physically make meaning of their everyday.

Dance provides children with a unique way to develop literacy skills, to express themselves and communicate ideas and stories well before they read and write.

Queensland Ballet places great importance on early years dance and works collaboratively with industry leaders to ensure we are at the forefront of development research and dance practices.


Inspired children build creative communities.
