Queensland Ballet Academy

Queensland Ballet Academy is a world-class ballet training organisation. We offer a comprehensive industry-aligned, professional career pathway producing young dancers whose talents and abilities are in demand throughout Australia and internationally.

With thanks to considerable financial and ideological support from the Premier and the State Government of Queensland, we are thrilled to have moved into brand new, purpose-built facilities in 2020 while simultaneously extending our professional ballet training offerings to students from eight years of age through to pre-professional level.

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.
