To audition for Ballet Theatre you need to be studying Grade 4 RAD (or equivalent syllabus level) or above.
Talented students from all dance schools are welcome to audition, with all dancers given an equal opportunity to shine on the day. Our auditions include a master class taken by our Artistic Director (and guest adjudicators),in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere.
Successful dancers are advised by email. Once accepted into the company, dancers rehearse alternate Sundays in term 3, and most Sundays in term 4. The 2022-2023 timetable is available here.
Rehearsals are usually held between 9am and 5pm at the studios of the Kelvin Grove Excellence Program in Kelvin Grove. They begin with company class, often taken by a guest artist from within the dance profession. Most classes are accompanied by a pianist.
Two weeks of intensive rehearsals are scheduled – the first week of September school holidays and the week before the performance in January. These rehearsals are compulsory.
Ballet Theatre’s season of six to seven performances at the Playhouse, Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) utilises all dancers in two casts, giving every dancer the opportunity to perform a variety of roles.
AUDITIONS FOR THE JANUARY 2023 PRODUCTION OF SWAN LAKE ACT 2 & GRADUATION BALL WILL BE HELD ON APRIL 24.
