Become a BTQ Dancer
To audition for Ballet Theatre you need to be studying Grade 4 RAD (or equivalent) or above.
We welcome talented students from all dance schools. All dancers who audition are given equal opportunities. Our auditions are relaxed and fun, with students taking part in a master class run by our Artistic Director (and guest adjudicators).
Successful participants are advised by email. Once accepted into the company, members are expected to attend all rehearsals. See 2017/18 Timetable. Reheasals are held most Sundays during Terms 3 and 4 of the school year.
Rehearsals include a company class, sometimes taken by a guest artist from within the dance profession, and are usually held between 9am and 5pm at the studios of the Kelvin Grove Excellence program (formerly QDSE) in Kelvin Grove.
Two weeks of intensive rehearsals are scheduled - during the September school holidays and the week before the performance in January. These rehearsals are complulsory.
Each year BTQ presents a season of six performances at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC), utilising all dancers in two casts. This means every dancer has the opportunity to learn and perform in a variety of roles.
Auditions for BTQ dancers are held in March each year.
