Ballet Ireland

Ballet Ireland was founded in 1997 and gave its inaugural performances at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, in September 1998. The company mounts two major new productions every year together with a very extensive educational and commissioning programme. Ballet Ireland is funded by The Arts Council.

The aim of Ballet Ireland is to develop a full-time classical ballet company of the highest quality, with a wide-ranging repertoire of international standard, which promotes an appreciation of ballet amongst people of all ages and backgrounds and generates a significant audience for performances on both national and international stages.

Ballet Ireland is intended to have a broad role in promoting, developing and performing ballet. The objective is to create a company with a broad repertoire of classical and new work with high standards of artistic productions to offer audiences a complete artistic experience.

Awareness and appreciation of the arts enriches not only individual lives but also society as a whole, it is, therefore, a particular focus of Ballet Ireland to engage in projects aimed at developing this awareness and appreciation, particularly in the young.
