Please join us in congratulating the incredible Megan Connelly on her appointment as the Artistic Director and Head of School at The Australian Ballet School! 👏🎉🩰

Megan has been part of our Artistic Team since 2001, most recently in the crucial role of Rehabilitation Specialist guiding our artists through pregnancies, injuries, surgeries, and rehabilitation, extending or saving the careers of hundreds of dancers.

Megan's dedication to The Australian Ballet will be greatly missed, but all of us at the company are thrilled by this news.

We look forward to continuing to strengthen the partnership between our company and The Australian Ballet School under Megan's leadership, building on the legacy of outgoing Artistic Director Lisa Pavane.

Congratulations Megan!
