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

Our Storytime Ballet productions are created especially for children aged 3 and up. Running for under an hour, this interactive and narrated ballet will have both boys and girls dancing all the way home.

Currently, there are no performance dates for Storytime Ballet. Add to calendar to hear the latest announcements and ticket on-sales.

Once Upon a Time: The Sleeping Beauty

In 2018, Once Upon a Time: The Sleeping Beauty comes to Adelaide. It's a magical ballet experience for the littlest lovers of dance. This special 60-minute, child-friendly version of The Sleeping Beauty is a fully staged production performed with live music and narrated by the royal servant, Catalabutte.
