Queensland Ballet to celebrate World Tutu Day
On Sunday, February 1, Queensland Ballet will open up the doors of its home in West End, the Thomas Dixon Centre, to celebrate World Tutu Day.
Queensland Ballet CEO Anna Marsden is thrilled to celebrate World Tutu Day for the second year following the success of 2014.
“Everyone here at Queensland Ballet is very excited to bring Tutu Day back again this year,” Marsden said.
“Make sure you mark February 1 in your diary, and bring along all of your little ballet fans for a fun-filled day of kids’ activities, dance workshops and behind-the-scenes glimpses into our fairytale world.”
Free children’s dance classes, a ‘stage magic’ room, jumping castles, face painting, a photo booth and costume displays are just some of the exciting activities planned.
“Watch the video and see us having ‘tutu’ much fun last year. We look forward to seeing you this year, and having just as much fun!” Marsden said. (See the video below.)
World Tutu Day will begin at 10 a.m. for Queensland Ballet and run through 2 p.m. at Thomas Dixon Centre, located at Cnr. Drake Street and Montague Road in West End. Food, drinks and PW Dance & Sportswear merchandise will be available to purchase on site. For more information, visit www.queenslandballet.com.au.
