Christian’s Story

A self-confessed “Aussie boy”, Christian’s ballet career has been loyal to one company – West Australian Ballet. At 19 as a student he was spotted during daily class and offered every young dancer’s dream – a career-starting professional contract.


That was 2004 and he was the youngest dancer at WAB, now, fast forward to 2020 and Christian is one of the senior dancers amongst our 38-dancer company. In addition to the growth in the number of dancers, Christian has seen tremendous growth in the artistic output and technical standard of the Company which in turn has supported his own development as a dancer.


After 16 years at WAB, “I thought 2020 was going to be the best year yet…”


We might have to wait for 2021, Christian!
