Box Hill Ballet is a not-for-profit community organisation, run by a volunteer committee, with the aim of promoting and developing a love for dance across many different styles and all generations.
The philosophy of Box Hill Ballet is to foster a love for dance within the community. Our students range in age from 3 to adults and we cater for all levels of experience including adult beginners.
During the year Box Hill Ballet holds various events including: Open Days during the final week of Terms 1, 2 and 3, allowing family and friends to watch the students in class; the Winter concert, a fun informal afternoon for students to present their progress via a ‘mini’ performance; and finally, the excitement of the end of year Show.
Box Hill Ballet is a community of passionate dancers and their families who wish to bring that passion to the broader society so that everyone can enjoy dance.
Our success stems from our passionate, dedicated and hardworking members of the Box Hill Ballet Community – from the Principal, Jan Turner, to her staff, the parents and students, and the volunteer Committee members – all committed to the success of the School and the rewards that come from being involved.
The School prides itself in its reputation of being very “family-friendly” , so much so that some students have been dancing with the school long enough to perform on stage with their own daughters, as well as a number of second and third generation students attending classes.
We continue to maintain an extensive Costume Wardrobe, which enables us to reuse, recycle, and rejuvenate existing costumes – this also helps to reduce the cost to parents and students of providing costumes for Annual and other Performances.
After 67 years, our aim is the same as in 1951 : “To practice, appreciate, and extend the Art of Dance in Box Hill, and beyond”.
