Upon acceptance into the Academy, a non-refundable security deposit is required to secure the position prior to program commencement. This amount will be deducted from the total program fees owing. 

A comprehensive Fee Policy will be made available at enrolment and families must agree to strict payment terms and conditions to maintain enrolment.

In addition to program fees, other expenses include those relating to dancewear, uniforms, medical expenses, *schooling, living and ancillary expenses, and are the responsibility of the student/family. 

*Schooling expenses are only relevant to the Upper and Lower School (Levels 6 to 1). Our Academic partner, Kelvin Grove State College is an Independent Public School and therefore does not charge school tuition fees. School-related expenses include an 'Out-of-Catchment' enrolment application fee for those living outside of the designated school catchment, an annual resource fee, uniforms, some subject fees, stationary, excursions/incursions etc.

Program fees listed above are applicable to Australian and New Zealand students only. For International Student fees, please contact

All fees are subject to change with written notice provided to families of enrolled students.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors and partners, Queensland Ballet Academy is able to offer a number of scholarships, bursaries and awards each year. Part or full scholarships, bursaries and awards may be offered to students, at the discretion of the Academy Director, at any point during the continuum of audition, enrolment and progression from year to year.

Parents/carers, and students over 18 years of age, may submit an application for financial assistance during the annual application process. Details are provided during enrolment.

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.
