Craig Freigang began dancing at age 10 at a small studio in Holland, Michigan. In 2011, he began training at the Ballettschule Ilonka Theis in Hanover, Germany, before returning to Michigan. In 2015, he enrolled in Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy, where he was awarded the Peter Schetter Scholarship.  


Freigang joined Ballet Austin in 2018 as a trainee, performing in Stephen Mills’ Giselle, The Firebird, and The Nutcracker. The following season, he joined Milwaukee Ballet II, where he performed as Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake and in new works by choreographers Thom Dancy, Adam McKinney, and Kristopher Estes-Brown. Freigang also appeared alongside the Company in Michael Pink’s Coppélia and The Nutcracker as well as Timothy O’Donnell’s world premiere of Sacre in Ballet Russe Reimagined.   

Since being promoted to the Company in 2020, Freigang has performed as the title role in Stephanie Martinez’s world premiere of El Maestro, the soloist in Darrell Grand Moultrie’s premiere of Flight Anew, Timothy O’Donnell’s Boléro, and Price Suddarth’s Aftermath. Freigang has also performed several featured roles in Michael Pink’s choreographic work, including the Debt Collector in Beauty and the Beast, the Chinese and Arabian variations in Pink’s The Nutcracker, various roles in Don Quixote and Classical Symphony, and Frollo in Hunchback of Notre Dame.
