Encouraged by his dance teacher mother, Jarryd Madden started dancing at the age of three at his local dance school in Wauchope, NSW. He remained there until 2005 when, age 16, he joined Melbourne’s National Theatre Ballet School. After a guest stint with The Australian Ballet during the 2007 season of Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker, Jarryd officially joined the company at the beginning of 2008 and was promoted to coryphée in 2011.
