Ballet Theatre Queensland believes passionately in supporting the youth dance sector of Queensland. With our long history of producing professionally staged ballets for talented young dancers, we are committed to continuing this wonderful tradition.

A not-for-profit organisation, Ballet Theatre Queensland has survived the decades through box office receipts and the dedication and passion of countless parents and friends of the company. To continue providing first class professionally staged productions for our talented young dancers, we invite you to be part of this creative process, by supporting the design and creation of our beautiful sets and costumes for each of our ballets.

Ballet Theatre Queensland is a registered charity and any donation you make over $2 is tax deductible. Your support will help dreams come true for aspiring young dancers as they prepare for a career in the dance profession.


Young aspiring dancers the world-over, dream of performing on a professional stage, in the magical Act II of the classic ballet, Swan Lake.

Help make our dancers’ dreams come true by making a tax-deductible gift to our Tutu Campaign. We need to create 50 beautiful white swan tutus for our young dancers who will be performing in our 2020 production of Swan Lake Act II.

Made specifically for each dancer, a single tutu requires eight to 10 metres of netting, 1.5 metres of delustred satin or silk, 1.5 metres of lining, and half a metre of lycra, as well as trim and crystals for embellishment.

Here are some suggestions only, for your gift indicating the level of support:

  • $500 – Odette, the beautiful Swan Queen’s tutu (Encore level)
  • $300 – a corps de ballet swan tutu (Finale level)
  • $250 – material for one tutu (Finale level)
  • $200 – one roll of tulle (Finale level)
  • $100 – 4 metres delustred satin for 3 tutus (Act 2 level)
  • $50 – trim and crystals for one tutu (Act 1 level)
  • $10 (Overture level)
  • $5 (Overture level)

All donors will be acknowledged on our website and in the January season souvenir program.

The BTQ Tutu Campaign is supported by Creative Partnerships Australia through Plus1. 

Every donation made will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
