The Cullberg Ballet (Swedish: Cullbergbaletten) is a Swedish contemporary dance company.

It was founded by the modern dancer and pioneer choreographer Birgit Cullberg in 1967, who brought it to fame. After Cullberg's retirement in 1985 the company was until 1993 run by her son, the popular Swedish dancer, choreographer and stage director Mats Ek.

From 2003 Cullbergbaletten was managed by choreographer Johan Inger and is now under the leadership of Artistic Director Anna Grip.[1]

The Cullberg Ballet is part of Riksteatern and tours both nationally and internationally.
