Founded in 1962, The Australian Ballet is one of the country's flagship arts companies, and for five decades has been the defining face of ballet in Australia.
Each year the company performs classical repertoire and contemporary works by major Australian and international choreographers, as well as new commissions that explore the development and future of this dynamic art form. The Australian Ballet's diverse repertoire reflects the company's motto: caring for tradition, daring to be different.
One of the busiest ballet companies in the world, The Australian Ballet annually presents approximately 200 performances in cities and regional areas around Australia, in addition to regular international touring. Recent tours include Paris, Manchester, Tokyo, Shanghai, Auckland, Cardiff and a season in London for which the company won the UK Critics' Circle award for Best Foreign Dance Company.
Versatility, technical excellence and a warm, friendly style are the trademarks of The Australian Ballet; qualities that have earned both critical and audience acclaim.
