As Atlantic Canada's only professional ballet company, Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada is in a unique position to touch the lives of people in many cities, towns and rural areas across this region. We work to ensure that the arts remain accessible to the broadest possible audience through a range of outreach and education programs, as well as participation in community events.
Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada is a neo-classical ballet company dedicated to performing original works by one choreographer – Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy. Founded in 2001 by Susan Chalmers-Gauvin, CEO and Igor Dobrovolskiy,  the Company pursues a continuous creative process through collaboration with like-minded artists attracted by the vision and artistic philosophy of its Artistic Director. Atlantic Ballet Theatre tours throughout Atlantic Canada, nationally and internationally. The dancers of the Company are a unique corps of artists who bring brilliant technique and transforming characterization to the stage. Mr. Dobrovolskiy uses the solid foundation of classical ballet technique as a springboard for an expressive dance lexicon characterized by intense drama, and powerful, lyrical structures which explore the human condition. Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada makes it's home in a beautifully equipped 7500 square ft space. The location was renovated specifically for the Company and includes two 50 by 50 ft studios with floating floors, change rooms with showers, administrative offices, Green Room and roof top balcony for the artists of the Company.
