West Australian Ballet Centre is the heritage-listed home of WA’s world-class State Ballet Company, West Australian Ballet.
The Company, with 37 dancers, Administration, Production and Wardrobe teams produces five seasons in Perth per year, and regularly tours state-wide, nationally and internationally.
The West Australian Ballet Centre is the former Institute of the Blind. Built in 1937, the Centre was renovated in 2012 to house the Company with four large dance studios each with state-of the-art sprung floors, and a large Wardrobe department which creates and maintains the Company’s significant collection of costumes. The Centre is an active creative space just 200 metres from the Maylands Train Station.
The historic building has retained several heritage features both internally and externally, and operates 18 hours per day with Adult Ballet Classes and a Community Studio hired to operators such as Kindy Dance Time and Dance for Parkinson’s.
