Mathieu Ganio (born 16 March 1984) is a French danseur étoile of the Paris Opera Ballet.

Mathieu Ganio was born in Marseille, France, the son of Ballet National de Marseille principal dancers Dominique Khalfouni and Denys Ganio.[1] He began dance lessons at the age of seven and studied at the École Nationale Supérieure de Danse de Marseille from 1992 to 1999, before completing his training at the Paris Opera Ballet School.[2] In 2001 he joined the corps de ballet of the Paris Opera Ballet and won promotion to the rank of coryphée in 2002 and sujet in 2003. On 20 May 2004, following a performance of Don Quixote, he was appointed étoile, bypassing the rank of premier danseur.[3] In 2005 he was awarded the Benois de la Danse as outstanding male dancer.[4]

His younger sister, Marine Ganio, is a sujet of the Paris Opera Ballet.[5][6]
