27 July — 4 August, Thomas Dixon Centre, West End

Synergy brings together the rising stars of Queensland Ballet, in a series of short, contemporary and neo-classical works, performed by the dancers of the Pre-Professional and Jette Parker Young Artist Programs, as well as Company Artists.

With a focus on the creation of new works, this season will welcome both established and emerging choreographers, including Rani Luther, Louise Deleur as well as QB’s own Vito Bernasconi and Jack Lister. Celebrating the fusion of QB’s Academy and Company, the choreographers will work closely with the Artists in the development of this intimate studio season.

In addition to attending the performance, aspiring young dancers can take part in exclusive Masterclasses with the talented artistic and creative teams. Held in QB’s home studios, these classes will offer a unique training opportunity to develop a broader understanding of dance and enhance technical awareness.



Take part in exclusive masterclasses with our talented artistic and creative teams.
