QUINTE REGION & LINKS
Quinte Ballet School of Canada is well situated in Ontario’s charming and diverse Bay of Quinte region, an area offering students and families all the amenities and opportunities that nurture both youth and adults in a safe and connected community. Identified as one of the best areas in Canada in which to live, it is rich with history and a thriving industrial sector. There is much to recommend a visit to enjoy magnificent beaches, live theatre, farm markets, OHL hockey with the Belleville Senators, plus some of Ontario’s best golf courses.
Conveniently located off Hwy #401, Belleville itself serves a population base of over 155,000 people. Thus, its facilities and services are on par with those of a much larger community. Fine dining, cinemas, a variety of shops and a thriving arts community, the area is also a destination of choice for outdoor fun – skiing, boating, fishing, hiking and camping. QBSC is just minutes away from the Bay Bridge which is the gateway to Prince Edward County with its numerous artisan studios, wineries, craft breweries, and world famous Sandbanks Provincial Park beaches.
The region boasts many performance venues such as Pinnacle Playhouse – home of the Belleville Theatre Guild, the Regent Theatre in Picton, Festival Players of Prince Edward County and the nearby Stirling Festival Theatre. Belleville’s landmark Empire Theatre offers concerts, film and stage productions with world class artists. Westben in Campbellford delights with jazz, and the Quinte Symphony offer the perfect solution for those who enjoy classical music.
