Introducing David

Brisbane-born David Power began dancing at the age of three at Dancentrix Academy, before making the move to Melbourne at 15 years old to study at The Australian Ballet School. Here, he continued to develop his love of dance as a form of movement and creative expression. He graduated in 2014 and launched his career with Queensland Ballet as a Jette Parker Young Artist in 2015, where he was quickly promoted to Company Artist just a year later. David has danced with the company since, enjoying roles such as Peter Pan in Trey McInTyre’s Peter Pan, Prince Ivan in Liam Scarlett’s The Firebird, and his favourite role to date, Mercutio in Sir Kenneth Macmillan’s Romeo & Juliet. In 2020 David was promoted to First Company Artist.
