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.
