Our Mission

We are a classical ballet company offering a unique and theatrical repertoire, consisting of traditional ballet and newly commissioned works performed in a contemporary way.

We are a new voice in ballet. Relevant and responsive, we challenge our dancers and our audience with new experiences in dance. We see it as our responsibility to develop ballet in Canada, engage audiences and educate our community, train dancers of the future and act as an ambassador of our art and our country.


Alberta Ballet is Canada’s second largest ballet company, globally renowned for its repertoire of classical and contemporary productions. Now in our 47th year, and as Canada’s only arts organization with a province-wide mandate, we embody the finest aspects of Alberta culture while combining the highest level of art and athleticism.

Recently, the company has caught the world’s attention for its Artistic Director, Jean Grand-Maître’s ‘portrait ballets’ – collaborations with popular music icons including Joni Mitchell, Sir Elton John, Sarah McLachlan, and k.d. lang.

Alberta Ballet reaches thousands of Albertans each season from September to May in addition to performing for audiences across Canada and internationally. The company invites leading and world renowned dance companies, conductors, choreographers, and guest artists to take part in our seasons - bringing the best of the art form to Alberta stages.
