This class is perfect for those who have recently completed Ballet Foundations 1 or have had some experience but are wanting a refresher before jumping into Ballet Level 1. Visit our Courses page for dates and details.

Ballet Level 1


Ballet Level 1 offers casual classes for Ballet Foundations graduates or anyone with a little ballet experience. Dancers will enjoy more challenging exercise combinations which link steps together (this is a great place to start if you did ballet classes as a child).

Ballet Level 2


If you have a firm knowledge of ballet technique then you’re ready for this class.  Develop your technique, co-ordination and rhythm through longer and more challenging sequences including adage, pirouettes and allegro combinations.


Ballet Level 3


Developed for dancers with previous experience to reintroduce pointe work into your practice. We recommend participants begin with the Ballet Level 2 class from 9am - 10am to thoroughly warm up.

Ballet Pre-Pointe Strengthening Class

A tailored 15 minute class to develop the strength and techinique required for safe pointe practise.   

Ballet Pointe

Designed for dancers who are confident in their understanding of ballet technique and principles, this class will develop your ballet vocabulary, musicality and artistry. It is ideal for pre-professional, professional and ex-dancers, current ballet teachers, as well as students enrolled in full time ballet training. 


Repertoire (8 week course)

Experience what it's like to be a member of the corps de ballet of a Company - rehearsing excerpts from Coppélia and then performing (in-studio to family and friends). This new 8-week course will focus on stagecraft, musicality, group spatial awareness, patterns and performance artistry.
We are thrilled to have QB staff member, and former dancer with Royal New Zealand Ballet and The Australian Ballet, Kismet Bourne, as the teaching artist for this course. Repertoire course is suitable for those who have completed both the Ballet Basics courses, and will include some floor work and faster movements, etc. so please ensure you’re physically capable prior to reserving your spot.
