Dance Dialogues

7 June — 17 June, Thomas Dixon Centre, West End

An exclusive opportunity to experience Queensland Ballet performing in our studio home.

This annual highlight allows you to get to know Queensland Ballet and the creative process a little better. Company dancers and Jette Parker Young Artists will present a collection of short ballets choreographed by our dancers and other emerging talent. Also witness a working rehearsal in which our dancers are coached by Artistic staff in an excerpt from an upcoming production.
