Simon Plant was born in Sydney, Australia and started dancing at the age of 7. After graduating from The Australian Ballet School in 2013, he joined the Australian Ballet where he performed works by choreographers Wayne McGregor, Graeme Murphy, Kenneth MacMillian, Simon Dow, Peter Wright, Stanton Welch, Jiří Kylián’s, Tim Harbour, and others. After moving to New York City with his husband in 2017, Simon became a company dancer with Complexions Contemporary Ballet. He danced five seasons with CCB, premiering multiple world premieres under co-artistic director and choreographer, Dwight Rhoden and co-artistic director/co-founder Desmond Richardson. Simon came on as Faculty for the 2022 Complexions Academy Summer Intensives, teaching company repertoire and NIQUE, Rhoden and Richardson’s proprietary contemporary ballet technique, to students around the country. Simon is also a published author; when he’s not dancing he’s writing or spending quality time with his husband. He is thrilled to be joining Cincinnati Ballet for the 2022-2023 season.
