About us

Alberta Ballet thrills and inspires audiences with unparalleled productions. As a resident company of the Jubilee Auditorium, it reaches over 60,000 Albertans each year with performances in Calgary and Edmonton. 

Alberta Ballet was founded in 1966 in Edmonton by Ruth Carse and Muriel Taylor. Today, it is a holistic ecosystem: a major professional performing arts company with an integrated and internationally renowned ballet training institution.  

Alberta Ballet’s standing company of artists are classically trained and renowned for wide-ranging versatility. These dancers come from across Canada and around the world. 40% of the troupe are alumni of Alberta Ballet School, Alberta Ballet’s training division. 

The most powerful part of our work is what you’ll walk away with –feelings, memories and connection. 


Our vision is to ignite creativity, inspire excellence, and foster a lifelong love for dance through innovative performances, rigorous training, and inclusive education, enriching the cultural fabric of our community and beyond.
