Thomas Dixon Centre

#Our Home – the Thomas Dixon Centre

The Thomas Dixon Centre's transformation represents an unwavering belief in the future of our art form, our community and Queensland Ballet. It has only been made possible by the shared vision of our generous supporters.

From its beginnings in 1908 as a boot and shoe factory, the heritage-listed Thomas Dixon Centre has been transformed into a world-class performing arts destination and cultural precinct, abundant with stories. It features a state-of-the-art 351 seat theatre, stunning public art, dance studios, community spaces and gardens, built with health and wellbeing at its heart.

Support the Thomas Dixon Centre by dedicating a seat in our Talbot Theatre, or taking your support into the private heart of our artists’ world with a dancer’s dressing room station dedication.

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.
