Queensland Ballet is offering community dance classes and in-school workshops in Bundaberg as part of its annual Regional Community Tour in March.
Education Teaching Artists from QB are visiting Bundaberg on Friday 18 and Sunday 20 March to work with up and coming dancers, with programs available for dancers of all ages.
The programs range from Petit Pointers for the youngest lovers of dance through to Ballet for Seniors for active, mature adults.
Children from six to 17-years-old will also delight in tailored ballet workshops.
QB’s Regional Community Tour aims to get people moving and inspire inner creativity, providing locals the opportunity to experience the physical, social and emotional benefits of dance. Last year, the tour engaged over 9000 participants across 37 locations.
QB Head of Community Engagement Genevieve Dunn said regional touring had been an inherent focus of the company since founder and former Artistic Director Charles Lisner’s first regional tour back in 1961.
“We are Queensland’s ballet company, and our annual regional touring initiatives allow us to connect with diverse communities, ensuring those who want to experience and enjoy meaningful arts experiences have the opportunity to do so,” said Ms Dunn.
“We are incredibly grateful for the support of Arts Queensland, host local councils and our generous donors and partners, who continue to offer unwavering support to QB’s regional initiatives.
“From Grafton to Weipa and everywhere in between, we hope to see local community members join us,” Ms Dunn added.
