QB Giving Day
17 October 2019

At 9 am on Thursday 17 October we will raise the curtain on our inaugural Giving Day.

QB Giving Day 17 October 2019

We will have 24 hours to fill our new Academy home with all that our students need to thrive:

  • a world-leading teaching faculty
  • ballet barres, pianos and pianists for our six studios
  • physiotherapists, health and fitness equipment for our Wellness Suitescholarships to support our students with their tuition and living expenses. 

How it works

For 24 hours only, donations secured from our generous match donors means that every $1 you donate will be quadrupled.

Our campaign will start at 9am Thursday 17 October and conclude exactly 24 hours later. In that time, we will reach out to all those who believe.

We don’t shy away from challenge at Queensland Ballet, so our Giving Day is a one day only, ALL OR NOTHING campaign! If we don’t reach our target, your donation won’t be processed.

We believe that a great Ballet Academy is the foundation of a great Ballet Company.

In 1953, Charles Lisner founded Queensland Ballet’s first training programs to give young talent a platform to shine. As we open the doors to our new Academy home in 2020, we continue to place our students at heart, bringing professional ballet training together with academic studies on one campus at Kelvin Grove State College. In full flight, our Academy will nurture more than 150 young students from Years 7-12. 

Thanks to the Queensland Government, our new Academy is nearing completion.

Your quadrupled gift can fill our Academy with all that our students need to thrive:

  • $25 transforms to $100 - towards physiotherapy treatments for our students
  • $50 transforms to $200 - towards a Pilates reformer for our Wellness Suite
  • $100 transforms to $400 – towards our world-stage teaching faculty
  • $250 transforms to $1,000 – towards our talented pianists
