Scenic Rim Regional Council is delighted to partner once again with Queensland Ballet in 2020 to deliver Queensland Ballet Celebration of Seniors on Friday 13 November; this time at the Vonda Youngman Community Centre, Main Street, North Tamborine.

The aim of this initiative is to help raise community awareness about dance and to enrich lives through ballet. Each component will offer participants the chance to connect with Queensland Ballet, a vibrant creative company which seeks to enrich the lives of all people. These workshops are free.

The Seniors Week Celebration will be structured according to the following guidelines:

Activities are drop-in. Participants are only expected to register for the activity/ies that suit them. There is no expectation that participants will register for the entire day.

‘Senior’ means any person who identifies as an active older adult and all classes will be led by Queensland Ballet’s highly skilled Teaching Artists with a maximum capacity for each session being set at 25 participants.

There are two sessions. Participants can book for either one or both. The AM session 9:00am – 10:00am is Ballet for Seniors then a Ballet for Seniors Repertoire Class from 10.30am to 11.30am with a morning tea break in-between.

The PM session 12:00pm – 1:00pm is Jazz for Seniors then a Seniors Stretch and Strengthen at 1.30pm to 2.30pm with an afternoon tea break from 1.00pm to 1.30pm.

Comfortable clothes and shoes are to be worn but it is important to note that no dance experience is necessary.

Queensland Ballet workshops have been extremely popular in the past, so it is recommended to register early. Go to liveatthecentre.com or phone 5540 5050 between 10am and 4pm Tuesdays to Fridays.
