State-of-the-Art New Home in Kelvin Grove

State-of-the-Art New Home in Kelvin Grove

On 6 March 2020, the Minister for Education and Minister for Industrial Relations officially opened the doors of Queensland Ballet Academy's state-of-the art elite training facility at Kelvin Grove State College. This development represents an exciting chapter enabling a transformational educational and artistic collaboration between Kelvin Grove State College and Queensland Ballet.

The Academy building currently offers dual ballet and dance training, and senior education to students from years 7-12 enrolled in our Upper and Lower Schools, and part-time studies for students enrolled in our Guest Academy Program and Foundation Program.

#Academy Spaces

Our Academy building in Kelvin Grove features six world-class dance studios, student quarters including a green room, a classroom for additional studies, physiotherapy facilities, Pilates studio, and weights gym.

Studios 7-12

Designed to be among the best in the world, the six spacious, brand new studios nurture inspiration and aspiration every day. With the capability to hold intimate performance experiences and capacity to host large-scale celebratory open days, the studios and foyer spaces play host to a variety of special occasions.

Wellness Suite

We are able to provide world-leading medical facilities and care for our dancers, supporting injury prevention, treatment and recovery, and mental wellbeing. Our Academy Wellness Suite offers outstanding facilities, including a fully equipped gym, medical consultancy areas, and Pilates and physiotherapy spaces.

Learning & Development Spaces

General use rooms enable us to provide extended, enriching learning content in addition to ballet and dance-specific training. With the capacity to be multi-modal, the general learning spaces easily transform from classrooms to video learning areas, to parent/teacher interview spaces, teacher professional development facilities as well as larger format meeting rooms.

Student Dressing & Green Rooms

Open planned breakout spaces complete with kitchen facilities embedded into dancer green room areas and spacious dressing rooms provide timeout zones for rest and rejuvenation. The facility has been designed to ensure students will feel nurtured and safe, as well as content in the way the facility supports their goals for peak performance.

#Giving Day Impact

Brighter futures and pathways

The inaugural Queensland Ballet Giving Day in 2019 raised over $2.1 million for Queensland Ballet Academy, underwriting the costs of studio mirrors, barres and flooring; pianos; audio and unified communications; external, internal studio and wayfinding signage; and health and fitness equipment for the Wellness Suite.
