About Ballet Victoria
Founded in 2002, Ballet Victoria is a boutique professional ballet company with 12 dancers and four yearly productions. Our performances are dramatic, technically demanding, and often laced with humour.
Our productions are accessible and relevant to a wide range of multi-cultural audiences. The shows are entertaining, hold great artistic depth and satisfy both those who discover ballet and the expert aficionado.
With the direction of Paul Destrooper, innovation is happening, quietly but insistently. Music inspires bodies to create beauty and harmony in dance.
Having produced over 73 new works, including 10 full length ballets and international tours in the USA and Mexico, Ballet Victoria is starting its seventeenth season. The artistic team is constantly exploring new territory. Music creates an uncompromising range of choreographies, from Baroque music to Rock, from Opera to folk songs. The result: pure magic. The experience: fascinating. The memories: pure delight.
The mission of Ballet Victoria Society (Ballet Victoria and Ballet Victoria Conservatory) is:
1) To promote emerging dance talent of Vancouver Island
2) To educate the public on the value of dance in the community
3) To provide seasons of professional performances
