#Supporting Queensland Ballet Academy helps to make the greatest impact for our emerging artists.

With a highly skilled faculty and a purpose-built learning and training facility, Queensland Ballet Academy is the ideal environment for young, academically empowered dancers to thrive.

Queensland Ballet Academy is a unique training organisation for children aged 6-18 years. Our full-time program from Years 7 - 12, allows students to undertake face-to-face academic studies alongside their professional ballet training, all on the one site at Kelvin Grove State College. 

Supporting the Academy enables:

  • Delivery of professional training program from within world-class facilities
  • Support for students who otherwise may not be able to participate in our programs, due to socio-economic disadvantage including financial hardship, gender equity, geographic location and demographics, cultural background and family circumstances.
  • Support and wellness staff on site for students
  • Staging of professional performances to provide studio-to-stage experience for the next generation of dancers

The Academy acts as a springboard for each student developing their creativity, curiosity and technical ballet proficiency to propel them through their life.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
