Early Years Dance

Our Petit Pointers program is for children aged 1-5 years and aims to foster creativity, musicality and movement in each child. The program is underpinned by research and led by our expert teaching artists.

Dance is a great way to improve confidence, coordination, language and numeracy in our youngest learners. At the end of each 10 week Petit Pointers course, children will have developed some of the early foundational skills of ballet.

What's on

Queensland Ballet offers other one-off dance workshops and events throughout the year.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
