Our commitment to educators
To support school teachers, we deliver professional development workshops for embedding dance in the classroom, and to upskill and inspire educators.
Workshops can be tailored for delivery at your school during allocated staff professional development days, or teachers can register for a workshop hosted at Queensland Ballet studios.
Underpinned by current research, workshops are tailored for early years, primary and secondary educators, delivered by Queensland Ballet Education Teaching Artists, Ambassadors and special guest artists.

Embed dance into your teaching practice and enable your group to explore the world around them through movement and creativity.
Teachers are invited to participate in any of our experiences and can view them as providing genuine opportunities to learn new skills, knowledge and understandings in order to enhance student learning outcomes.
