Junior dancers in southeast Queensland can take centre stage this winter with Queensland Ballet Academy’s Junior Winter School exclusively for younger dancers aged 7-9 years.
Across this 3-day program, children will enjoy foundational training in classical ballet, character dance, repertoire and contemporary dance classes under the guidance of Queensland Ballet Academy’s world-class faculty.
Queensland Ballet Academy Director Christian Tàtchev says it’s exciting to identify potential at an early age because the Academy offers a training pathway to prepare students for a professional career.
“Our Academy faculty offers outstanding training and guides young dancers with a focus on safe dance practice and wellbeing,” he says.
Prior dance or ballet experience is beneficial but optional. The Academy welcomes young dancers with a fledgling curiosity to an avid interest in dance. Further training opportunities will be available to select participants following the winter workshop. Queensland Ballet Academy was established to align with Queensland Ballet’s vision to nurture and support world-class ballet and dance training in Queensland and Australia.
The state-of-the art training facilities in Kelvin Grove were opened in 2020 and the Academy now offers a range of training programs for young dancers.
