Matthew Lehmann

 

Born in Melbourne, Matthew started training at Ballet Theatre Australia in 1999 and continued to develop his skills at The Australian Ballet School in 2002. 2005 saw Matthew perform for the first time with the West Australian Ballet in their season Dangerous Liaisons, by Simon Dow after graduating and moving to Canada to join Alberta Ballet. During his time there, Matthew played Tybalt and Velmont in Romeo and Juliet and Dangerous Liaisons respectively, with his favourite being Yukichi Hattori’s choreography of Tubular Bells. After five years with the company, and side line participation in the Banff Professional Dance summer intensive programme, Matthew moved to Perth to continue to grow as a dancer joining West Australian Ballet for their 2010 Gala season. 2014 has seen Matthew in his most favourable season yet, Ballet at the Quarry performing Radio and Juliet under the new Artist Director Aurélien Scannella. He is now looking forward to many new challenges and experiences after being promoted to principal male after John Cranko’s Onegin at the end of 2013.
