Queensland Ballet’s next generation of professional ballet dancers will take to the stage for their annual showcase this weekend.

In Aspire 24, dancers from the Pre-Professional Program will test their technical and artistic expertise with classical and contemporary styles of dance.

The program will include excerpts from The Nutcracker, along with works by Queensland Ballet’s two resident choreographers Paul Boyd and Louise Deleur. It will also include a selection of pieces highlighting the emerging choreographic talent from within the cohort.

Queensland Ballet Academy’s Pre-Professional Program is a full-time, final year training schedule which provides young dancers with the preparation required to join a professional ballet or dance company.

Based at Queensland Ballet’s home in West End, the next generation of dancers thrive in this studio-to-stage, industry-aligned training program.

Aspire is on this weekend from May 24-25 at the Talbot Theatre, Thomas Dixon Centre, West End.
