Melbourne Dance Theatre is Melbourne's very own well established Ballet company which was formed in 2003 under the expertise of Martin and Michelle Sierra. Counting for over 25 years of professional experience worldwide, both Michelle and Martin felt the need to feed the artistic gap of Melbourne's arts community with a repertoire based on the Grand Ballets from the 20th Century and new contemporary ballets originaly choregraphed for the company.

Birthed out of their passion to create works that captivate audiences with the bauty of the classical ballet, the vision of MDT is to remain at the forefront of ballet and at the same time to reach new audiences within the Melbourne arts community. Continuously pushing the constrains of this art form but without compromising the essence what dance is, the Melbourne Dance Theatre desires to initiate new relationships with new audiences and to maintain their devotion to the already existing ones.

Operating continuously throughout the year, The Melbourne Dance Theatre covers a vast range of performance opportunities from Festivals, full length productions, charities, commercial events and workshops and performances for primary & secondary schools to national. Melbourne Dance Theatre has received recognition and countless highly praised reviews during renown Adelaide, Sydney & Melbourne Fringe Festivals. Michelle and Martins choreographies have also been highly praised in Australia & overseas bringing along the dance audience to a different level of entertainment.
