Music at the ballet

Music is an equal partner of dance, a defining element in everything we do.

“When you’re learning the work, you’re really just dealing with movement, and trying to figure it out. But when you put it in context, there’s a real kind of rawness to it, a real honesty.”

Prin­ci­pal Artist Cal­lum Linnane

The Australian Ballet’s inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) shares a vision for the company’s proactive engagement with Australia’s First Nations communities.

The development of a RAP advances company-wide reconciliation conversations and strengthens partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples who have shaped Australia's cultural and creative identity for millennia.
