PHOEBE Colburn has learnt her first positions and taken the first tentative steps to becoming a prima ballerina.
A student of The Ritz Performing Arts Centre in Sumner Park, the three-year-old will be one of the youngest dancers in the school's next big event.
She will share the stage on Saturday with performers ranging from toddlers to adults in The Ritz Biennial Gala Concert.
The popular event will showcase the talents of students as they present a spectacular exhibition of dance, drama, singing and musical theatre.
Principal Rhonda Binnie said the concert gave students a great opportunity to perform in a professional venue in front of a real audience.
"The students have been training hard since the start of the year," she said.
"We also have former students who have gone on to pursue professional careers in the industry, returning to appear as guest performers."
Corinda's Romy Vuksan, who earned a scholarship to attend Jason Coleman's Ministry of Dance in Melbourne, said she always enjoyed taking part in the event.
"I remember dancing in the concert when I was little and being blown away by the performances of the senior students," she said.
"Now, as a senior student myself, I get to show the younger dancers what they can achieve if they keep practising."
The Ritz Biennial Gala Concert will take place at the Stuartholme Auditorium, Birdwood Tce, Toowong, at 2pm on Saturday.
Tickets range from $20 to $35 and can be booked by phoning 0417 730 377.
