Kevin Jackson

"Physically striking and technically assured."

The Sunday Age

Born in Perth, Kevin commenced his dance training at the age of seven with the Shirley Farrell Academy of Dance. In 2002, he graduated from The Australian Ballet School and joined The Australian Ballet in 2003. In his time with the company, he has performed many lead roles in both classical and contemporary works by choreographers Tim Harbour, Nicolo Fonte, Matjash Mrozewski, Wayne McGregor and Graeme Murphy. Kevin enjoys the technique and artistry demanded by many different works but holds the story ballet closest to his heart. Kevin was promoted to principal artist in 2010 and looks forward to entertaining audiences around Australia and the world.
