Artists and artistic staff of The Australian Ballet, past and present, share an openness and love of audiences, the confidence to take risks, a spirited attack and the belief that technique on its own is never enough.
Dancing appears as natural to them as walking. They give approximately 200 performances across the country every year – from Petipa to punk, Balanchine to Bangarra.
Over the years, dancers and teachers have been welcomed from China, England, France, Russia, Spain, Sweden, the USA and the USSR. And new ballet school graduates from Asian, Latin American and European backgrounds are helping to make the company look like a snapshot of contemporary Australia. It is a company attuned to its time and place in the world.
The Australian Ballet is a full-time ensemble company employing dancers whose talents are showcased in both classical and contemporary repertoire. The exceptional qualities of the principal artists are well known and loved, and they proudly lead a company that has an abundance of talent throughout its ranks.
Behind The Australian Ballet’s dancers is a talented artistic team who help guide their performances into greatness.
