La Trobe University and The Australian Ballet: a partnership of all kinds of clever

What happens when Australia's most renowned ballet company joins forces with a university known for excellence in research and learning experiences? A multifaceted partnership that's making gravity-defying leaps in the realms of sport, art and education.

As The Australian Ballet's Research Partner, we have brought together La Trobe's acclaimed researchers in exercise medicine with the ballet company's internationally recognised medical team. Our students are contributing to research that's uncovering the strength, agility and endurance of the performers, leading to revolutionary injury prevention and rehabilitation programs for dancers and sportspeople alike.

Today, La Trobe is the preferred choice when The Australian Ballet's performers seek advice on planning for a career beyond the stage. Already we have had four dancers are enrolled in La Trobe's flexible course programs, joining 120 elite athletes from more than 40 sports.

And we're offering our students rare internship opportunities with The Australian Ballet across Australia and internationally. From discovering what it takes to create high-calibre stage productions, to undertaking clinical placements with the company's expert medical team, our students gain unmatched industry experience.

Away from lectures and internships, our students have access to exclusive discount ticket offers to see The Australian Ballet's inspirational performances throughout the year.

Want to learn from pioneering researchers, study with Australia's finest dancers and see amazing performances? From health sciences to cybersecurity, only La Trobe students have access to internships with The Australian Ballet. Take the leap towards your chosen course. Enrolments are now open for Semester 2, 2020.
