Aspiring ballet dancers in Australia and even all over the world will now have a chance to train and learn amidst better facilities once the $10 million expansion plan of the Queensland Ballet Academy in Kelvin Grove is in place.

In behalf of the State Government, the good news was announced by Education Minister Kate Jones and Member for Brisbane Central Grace Grace.

With the new plan, the Academy program will be able to accommodate students from Years 7 to 12 as the new facility will have a capacity of 200 dance students per year. A building for the QBA at the college will be built as well to make it easier for the students.

Currently, 46 students from all over the country are training in the ballet program whilst completing their senior studies at Kelvin Grove College.

The college is very thrilled with the expansion as this will bring more students to them giving them a chance to provide knowledge to more students.

QBA’s Senior Program is a world-class training program that offers intensive ballet training to students Years 10-12. The program is in partnership with the Department of Education and Training through KGSS. It is a three-year training course for advanced students and it is offered via additional or invitation. With expansion in the works, the opportunity to be trained under this program becomes greater.
