StatusOlympic (non-medal)
LocationTignes
Participants16 from 12 countries

Freestyle ballet was one of the three original forms of competition in freestyle skiing, along with moguls and aeriels. Ballet was contested as a demonstration event at both the 1988 and 1992 Winter Olympics. World Championships had been held in 1986, 1989, and 1991. Ballet would later be termed Acroski as an event, but it was discontinued at the World Championships after 1999, as it lost popularity after it was never afforded Olympic status with the other freestyle events.

The favorite would have been American Jan Bucher, the 1986 and 1989 World Champion, and runner-up in 1991, but she did not compete in Albertville. In her absence, the title went to Switzerland’s Conny Kissling, who had been third in this event at Calgary.
