Regional programs

Queensland Ballet is committed to delivering ballet to communities outside of the Brisbane metro area - and we bring performances and workshops to communities every year.

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.
