Australian dancers are unencumbered by any historical stylistic tradition. Their dancing is a bit like the country itself - a melting pot of reflection ...Stephen Baynes, Resident Choreographer
Art should reflect a society and landscape, The Australian Ballet dancers do that. They are expansive, healthy, athletic and generous.Lucas Jervies, choreographer
I love how open and honest Australian Ballet dancers are. Their attitude, commitment to the art form and sense of humour are qualities that create such a strong family of artists.Alice Topp, coryphée and choreographer
I love the physicality of ballet; but although the athleticism itself can be extraordinary, it’s the humanity within it that inspires me.Stephen Baynes, Resident Choreographer
