The company reaches thousands of Albertans over the course of its September to May season and has toured across Canada and internationally. Through both the originality of its programming and the talent of its classically-trained dancers, Alberta Ballet has earned a passionate following in its twin home cities, Calgary and Edmonton, and abroad.

Alberta Ballet School, established in 1991, is the only professional ballet school in western Canada. Under the leadership of Artistic Principal Ashley McNeil, Alberta Ballet School attracts local, national and international students to prepare for future dance careers using an exclusive curriculum. The School also offers recreational programming for all ages in both Calgary and Edmonton.
