DDQ offers two levels of our Elite dance program for Juniors and Seniors.
Dance Direction QLD Elite Dancers participate in a part time program:
- Saturdays from 8.00 – 1.30pm DDQE Senior
- Saturdays from 8.00 – 11.30pm DDQE Junior
The aim of DDQE is to offer our gifted, dedicated dancers an intensive part-time training program to take their technique and performance standard to the next level.
This will be done through professional tuition in a caring and encouraging environment.
The program offers a well rounded, balanced training curriculum of classical ballet, contemporary and pilates with lyrical, acrobatics & jazz

How do we qualify for DDQE?
2017 Auditions will take place at our Summer School from Monday 16th – Thursday 19th January.
- Dancers have to be in classical training.
- Should have at least 7 or more hours of dance per week.
- Strong love for dance goes a VERY long way
- Students should extend themselves more during the week. They may join more open classes free of charge to help maintain an ELITE level in dance.
- The more hours they build up, helps dancers fine tune technique, build stamina and of course will better them as a dancer.
- Please come and discuss this option with your teachers as we are more than happy to accommodate.
What will students get out of this?

- Enhanced dance performance
