About Geelong Ballet Centre

Our mission is to develop and foster the enjoyment of dance whilst providing quality dance tuition.

Classical, Contemporary, Jazz and Tap, Conditioning, Music Theatre as well as Singing Tuition are available for students.

All staff are qualified dance teachers and the study of child psychology, development and learning have been undertaken within our teaching certificate, diploma and degree courses. The Geelong Ballet Centre’s staff continually aim to create an environment of care and attention for both the recreational dance student as well as the dancer focussed on a professional career.

The Geelong Ballet Centre provides a comprehensive training program in the syllabus as set by the Royal Academy of Dance – London, which focuses on the pursuit of artistic excellence and personal growth. R.A.D (Graded) exams may be taken by eligible students as well as Vocational R.A.D exams for selected students and each year in October our annual performance is held at the Playhouse Theatre, G.P.A.C.

The Geelong Ballet Centre has been established for over 50 years.

Many former students have gone on to have a career in dance in Australia and overseas and to further their studies at locations which include the Australian Ballet School, The Australian Ballet Company, Victorian College of the Arts, Adelaide Faculty of Performing Arts, Premier State Ballet School of N.S.W., W.A. Academy of Performing Arts, Ballarat University, Dance World, the Russian Choreographic Academy and Queensland Ballet School.

The nurturing and care of all students is of prime importance together with quality and professional tuition.
