Ballet is not only an exquisite art form. It also inspires strength, coordination and flexibility in every body. 

 

Ballet Basics (8 week course)                                                                                                                    

Level 1, no experience required

If you’re ready to start ballet but haven’t tried it before then you should enrol in this course. From the foundations of classical ballet through to barre and centre exercises, completing this course is the best way to begin your ballet journey. Visit our Courses page for dates and details.

 

Beginner Ballet 

Level 2

Beginner Ballet offers casual classes for Ballet Basics 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 For Seniors

Open

Feel better, think better, live better – with ballet. This gentle class is especially tailored for Seniors, with a focus on improving poise, core strength, memory and mobility. 

Queensland Ballet is currently undertaking research on the health and wellbeing benefits of ballet for mature adults. Find out more here.

 

Intermediate Ballet

Level 3

If you have a firm knowledge of ballet foundations and 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.

 

Adult Pointe

Level 3

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

 

Advanced Ballet

Level 4

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. 

 

Being a QB Friend or Junior Friend not only gives you discounts to classes but also access to a range of exciting activities throughout the year. Follow the links to find out more!
