About Us

Founded in 2007, the Melbourne Ballet Company (MBC) has grown to become one of Australia’s most loved dance companies. It has defined its own unique style of Ballet, which is innovative and exciting while paying respect to classical technique.

Through city and regional performances the Company takes their audience on a choreographic journey that celebrates the physical form with great respect to musicality.

Under the leadership of Director Alisa Finney and Resident Choreographer Simon Hoy, the company has presented nine new programs, incorporating over thirty original works. MBC consists of a team of highly experienced classical dancers who consistently deliver truly remarkable performances. These dancers have trained and developed their skills at some of the most prestigious and renowned companies in the world including; The Australian Ballet, The Paris Opera and the Royal Ballet Company.

By building new audiences for dance, and through the discovery and nurturing of new talent, the Melbourne Ballet Company is helping to shape the future of dance in Australia.

Presently the Melbourne Ballet Company consists of ten professional dancers, all of whom have developed their skills and experience at some of the most renowned companies and schools in the world (including The Australian Ballet, The Paris Opera Ballet, Sydney Dance Company, WA Ballet, La Scala Milan, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet New York, Ballet Mainz, Carolina Ballet, the Royal Ballet School and Australian Ballet School. In recent years the Company also included artists formerly from Queensland Ballet, Singapore Dance Theatre, the Netherlands Dans Theatre and Hamburg Ballet).

In 2015 Melbourne Ballet Company premiered four new (critically acclaimed) full-length programs in Melbourne, and has toured extensively throughout Australia - presenting over 30 performances and 50 workshops. In August the Company toured to Auckland for the first time. In 2016 Melbourne Ballet Company will again be presenting over 30 performances and will also give over 50 workshops throughout Australia.
