This Program allows dancers from Australia and around the world to access elite training designed to refine their technique and gain valuable industry knowledge before becoming company artists. Through performance opportunities and world-class mentoring, this introduction to a professional dance career allows dancers to soar in years to come.
Jette Parker Young Artists often move seamlessly into Queensland Ballet as company artists, and other alumni have secured contracts with international and Australian ballet companies.
Jette Parker Young Artist Program and Oak Foundation
In 2014, Alan and Jette Parker of Oak Foundation, Geneva, offered a visionary, multi-year grant which enabled us to establish Queensland Ballet’s Jette Parker Young Artist Program. The condition of Oak’s pledge was that we match the funding with Australian philanthropy. Donors who support the Jette Parker Young Artist Program contribute to the required match-funding, ensuring that Queensland Ballet can continue to offer this exceptional dancer training program.
Now, our Jette Parker Young Artists seize opportunities to learn and explore their profession. They are encouraged to grow and mature into capable, artistically vibrant dancers with the knowledge and skills to sustain a satisfying and creative career.
