Developing the artists of the future is central to Queensland Ballet’s strategic vision, and Queensland Ballet Academy allows us to achieve this.

From 2015 - 2022, through the support from Department of Education, Queensland Ballet supporter and corporate supporters, Queensland Ballet has enabled 212 full or part bursaries and scholarships for students of our training programs.

Queensland Ballet Academy is a unique training organisation for children aged 8-18 years, that allows students to undertake face-to-face academic studies alongside their professional ballet training between Kelvin Grove State College and the Academy. Supporting the Academy enables:

  • Development of world-class facilities and equipment
  • Support and wellness staff on site for students
  • Staging of performances to provide professional experience
  • Support for students experiencing financial hardship
  • Accommodation support for students who have relocated to attend the Academy

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.
