Beauty. Power. Elegance. All of these words are synonymous with both BMW and Queensland Ballet. Established in 1960 by Charles Lisner OBE, Queensland Ballet offers a program of world-class productions of the best classical ballets and inspired contemporary dance works. Just like many models in the BMW range, Queensland Ballet’s dancers are acclaimed for their technical excellence and versatility under the guidance of Artistic Director and BMW Ambassador Li Cunxin.
Li has had a long and diverse career as an internationally acclaimed dancer and was appointed as Queensland Ballet’s fifth Artistic Director in July 2012. As well as publishing his own international best-selling autobiography, Mao's Last Dancer in 2003, which has received numerous awards and was adapted as a feature film in 2009, Li was awarded Queensland’s Australian of the Year in 2014.
BMW is proud to support such a vibrant and creative company who engage with the greater community, and encourage you to discover excellence in a form beyond BMW. Find out more about Li Cunxin and the Queensland Ballet’s upcoming performances at
