Discover one of Perth's most beautiful art deco gems for your next event.

The West Australian Ballet Centre stands upon the historic site of the original Victoria Institute and Industrial School for the Blind. Its beautiful heritage architecture dates back to 1898 when the Governor of Western Australia, Sir Gerard Smith, laid the foundation stone.

In 1937, the building was significantly enhanced and acquired its iconic art deco style. Secured for Western Australia’s State ballet company in 2012, the building underwent landmark upgrades to make it among the best performing arts facilities in the country. If you’re looking to hire a venue for your theatre show, workshops, preparing for a ballroom competition, filming a TV commercial, or looking to differentiate your next client event, the West Australian Ballet Centre has a space to suit your requirements.

Located close to the city, the West Australian Ballet Centre in Maylands is well-served by a train station nearby as well as ample visitor parking spaces. As well as being home to professional dance company and functioning as a buzzing community hub, the Centre is open seven days a week.
