ballet project [d] presents new ballet performances in Dublin every season, featuring new musical compositions and choreography that showcases the individuality of each professional dancer in our company.

We provide engaging cultural entertainment for the public that inspires local children and adults to pursue the art of ballet. One of our main goals is to share this mesmerizing art form with new audiences - this is why we always feature innovative ideas and approaches that make our performances more appealing and approachable to everyone.

Whether you're looking for an entertaining and artistic experience, or you're thinking about trying ballet out for yourself, our shows are designed with you in mind above all else. We're thrilled to share our devotion to this classical art form with Dublin - a city already passionate about music and dance.
