Discover the magic of dance at The Australian Ballet

Ballet Kids

Ballet for kids of all ages

Everyone loves to dance, and at The Australian Ballet we believe it’s never too early to start. There are countless ways for kids to get involved, from fairytale ballets on the mainstage to our series Storytime Ballet, plus classes, special events and behind-the-scenes exclusives.

Storytime Ballet Coppélia

Storytime Ballet is an enchanting dance experience that is brought to life as an interactive, narrated show created especially for young children. Kids are inspired by the delightful storytelling, graceful dancing and treasure trove of costumes and trinkets.

Join the narrator Dr Coppelius and young lovers Swanilda and Franz, as they sneak into the magician’s mysterious workshop and discover the secrets of his mechanical dolls.

Running for under an hour, children are fully immersed in the story and help make the magic happen on stage!
