Classical Ballet (5 years and up)

BalletBrisbane Dance Theatre follows the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet (ACB) – Vaganova Training and assessment program. The ACB is a classical ballet program which emphasizes dynamics and subtleties associated with correct placement and performing qualities in a dancer. The program aims to develop in the student a professional attitude which will assist them in the pursuit of a career either as a professional dancer or teacher. Examinations are held annually under the ACB on both technique and theory and are a great way for students to work towards their set goals.

The program is designed for the dedicated ballet teacher who has professional dance in their background.  At Brisbane Dance Theatre we are proud of our high calibre of teachers who have themselves danced professionally.

Ballet students must wear the studio uniform to their classes. We believe uniforms instil a sense of pride in oneself and makes students feel apart of a team environment. It is for these reasons all students attending Classical Ballet and Tiptoe dance classes are asked to wear our school uniform.


Contemporary Dance (8 years and up)

ContemporaryContemporary Dance and Stretch is an expressive dance form combining elements of classical ballet, modern dance and stretching techniques. We have classes for children, starting from 8 years of age.
