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
