Our Full Time Dancers train apporximately 30 hours a week, Tuesday-Saturday. In addition, Full Time Dancers will have access to all the after school classes.


The Full Time Program is designed for the serious student wishing to pursue a career in dance. The course aims to increase, improve, and refine technique, strength, knowledge and presentation. In addition, students in the program will have the opportunity to receive private coaching, helping to build them into not only stronger technicians and dancers, but also intelligent artists - ultimately preparing the student to enter directly into a career with a professional ballet company.


All of NBT’s teachers are ex-professionals with substantial careers as professional dancers, and many years of teaching experience. NBT has placed students into the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet, the Australian Ballet School, Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Queensland Ballet Pre-Professional Year, and Victorian State Ballet Secondments.

“Newcastle Ballet Theatre reflects the people that Principals Rider and Kristy are: nurturing and professional. Having a successful professional career themselves, they not only understand the physical technique needed for a professional career but also the mental strength that is equally important. 

I wouldn’t be the dancer or person I am today, if it hadn’t been for their wealth of knowledge and continual guidance.“
