Ballet Victoria is a boutique professional ballet company with four yearly productions that can adapt to various size stages. With minimal sets in favour of projections for both narrative full-length ballets and mixed programs we truly focus on dance. Our performances are not only dramatic and technically demanding but often include humour and are very accessible to audiences that may not be familiar with ballet. The shows are entertaining as well as relevant to today's audiences and satisfy both the ballet neophytes and aficionados. Our productions are imaginative and often surprise audiences choreographically and dramatically.

Ballet Victoria, through a short introduction, lecture and a performance, demonstrates the physical and technical requirements of a dancer's profession as well as the importance of the artistry required. With physical prowesses equal to professional athletes, the dance artists also develops great mental abilities. Beyond extreme coordination, strength and flexibility, the dancer must remember very complicated choreographies that completely change for each production. As well, they have to express emotions and connect with the audience beyond the steps they perform. Each school performance examines these aspects and promotes physical literacy as well as boosts interest in the arts with music and acting. From rock to classical music and trough contemporary and classical dance, Ballet Victoria is making ballet inspiring and exciting to a whole new generation of potential dancers, (recreational to professional) as well as sensitize all to the rich world of the arts.
