2025 Summer School

#About the training event

Summer School offers dancers aged 10 to 18 years the chance to further their training in a culture of collaboration and excellence, mentored by Queensland Ballet Academy's esteemed Faculty

The program includes classes in classical ballet technique, pointe work*, repertoire, character dance, contemporary dance, and male technique (subject to number of male participants). 

Students will also participate in informative discussions with a variety of professionals from Queensland Ballet, the broader industry and/or affiliated health fields. 

On the final day of this program, there will be a viewing day for parents/carers to see what their child has learned in classes throughout the week. Please note we are unable to accommodate viewing of the program classes on any day other than the viewing day. 

Program participants have the option to select in the registration form whether they are interested and happy to be approached about further training opportunities with Queensland Ballet Academy. Please ensure you speak with your main dance teacher prior to registering for the program and we encourage you to be transparent with them if you select these options in the form. Please note only select participants will be contacted about further training opportunities following the event.

*For safe dance practice, Queensland Ballet Academy Faculty will assess older students' ability for pointe work.


Participants will be placed into groups in accordance with their age at the commencement of the event.

Queensland Ballet Academy faculty will observe students during day 1 of the program and may make adjustments to a participant's level so that they can get the most out of their time training with us.


Summer School classes will be scheduled between 8.30am - 4.30pm AEST

*Detailed schedule to be provided by email the week prior to the event.

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.
