Queensland Ballet has launched a campaign designed to Keep the Magic Alive. Intended to surprise and delight both the dance community and the wider community at large, the campaign will inject creativity, dance and happiness in these strange times of an unprecedented performance shut down.
The company has launched a series of community engagement classes which can be accessed free of charge online.
Another major challenge facing the company is the need to keep its 60 dancers fit. Sixty ballet barres and sections of old tarkett flooring were delivered to surprise the company dancers.
Queensland Ballet has continued to engage its permanent staff on full pay, with its executive team of three taking a 20 percent pay decrease.
Recently launched, keepthemagicalive.com.au will be seeking to inspire the community to support Queensland Ballet in its endeavour to keep all its dancers and all members of its enabling teams through this period.
