Premier State Ballet is Australia’s Leading Youth Ballet Company. It provides the opportunity for students from The McDonald College, The McDonald After Hours program, and external auditioned students to become members of a semi-professional ballet company. Each year The Premier State Ballet (PSB) produces a full-length ballet production at the Riverside Theatre, Parramatta. In 2016, PSB presented Coppelia on the 23rd & 24th September.

PSB rehearses on Saturday afternoon and students must be prepared to work throughout the July school vacation and to attend rehearsals whenever called by the Director. PSB has been the launch pad for many dancers now performing professionally around the world.
