Dance has the profound power to enrich and transform lives, connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds; it is an art form that allows for the expression of individuals, communities and cultures, a defining aspect of being human. For this reason, Queensland Ballet love to connect people of all ages with ballet.
Developed by a team of highly experienced program managers, teaching artists, community engagement specialists and registered educators, all opportunities are underpinned by artistic excellence, authenticity, accessibility and creativity, delivering highly enjoyable and enriching activities for all students and children.
The focus of Queensland Ballet’s educational experiences is to complement and enhance the teaching and learning currently taking place in classrooms around the world.
Developed in consultation with teachers, Queensland Ballet provide a year-long calendar of events and specially crafted resources that offer school students insights and opportunities to learn, grow and have fun. Our array of experiences and opportunities include In-School workshops, Queensland Ballet Immersion Experiences, High School Work Experience Residencies and the Ambassador Program for Practicing Educators.
Queensland Ballet offers several enriching experiences for private dance studios and their students. These experiences are designed to create a supportive and encouraging environment in which our dancers, artistic staff and EdSquad can mentor, nurture and inspire the next generation of dancers.
Our Adopt-a-Dancer program provides a very special opportunity to develop a unique connection with one of the dancers from the Company.

In 2018 we are also pleased to announce the launch of our QB Junior – Studio Friends program.
