Queensland Ballet Academy’s First Open Day

Queensland Ballet Academy’s First Open Day

On Thursday, 15 July from 3.15pm to 6.00pm, Queensland Ballet Academy will hold its first Open Day since opening its state-of-the-art building in March 2020. This event will be hosted in conjunction with Kelvin Grove State College’s Open Day.

During Open Day, prospective students and their families will have the opportunity to tour the Academy’s facilities, attend an information session, observe dance lessons, and enter our prize giveaway. Visitors can also explore Kelvin Grove State College’s campus and learn about the College’s academic offering, its excellence programs, university programs, entrepreneurial programs, and futures-focused industry partnerships and programs.

Commenting on the Open Day, Academy Director, Christian Tátchev said:

“Our upcoming Open Day is the perfect opportunity for aspiring young dancers who are serious about becoming professional artists, to discover more about our training and our values. They will also have the opportunity to find out more about the invaluable partnership we hold with Kelvin Grove State College. This partnership allows us to nurture dancers who are not only training in line with the professional dance industry, but who are also academically empowered. I look forward to welcoming our Open Day participants and sharing our vision with them.”
