Queensland Ballet (QB) is a uniquely spirited and creative company, driven by a vision to enrich lives through ballet.
A vibrant contributor to Queensland’s cultural landscape, QB presents a program of world-class performances in Brisbane and tours regionally each year. Interstate and international tours have allowed the Company to share its art with audiences far beyond the State’s borders and become an integral part of the global ballet ecology. Engaging with artists from around the world, QB nurtures its dancers and art form through innovative, creative collaborations, from iconic classical masterpieces to bold, new contemporary works.
The artists of tomorrow are nurtured through elite ballet training at QB Academy, where a comprehensive, industry-aligned, professional career pathway is provided to students from 11 years of age to gifted young professionals.
Passionate about fostering wellness in individuals and communities, QB shares the multiple benefits of dance through inspiring, authentic engagement programs for people of all ages and abilities.
Since Charles Lisner OBE formed the Company in 1960, QB has been nourishing its art form, artists and community by honouring the classical ballet repertoire, exploring new and innovative productions, and sharing the gift of ballet with as many people as possible. Today, the Company is responding to a changing world with an ambitious plan that will see two legacy projects realised in 2020: the redevelopment of its Brisbane home into a landmark performing arts destination and a new, purpose-built Academy facility at Kelvin Grove State College.
