Classical Ballet / Dancer

Born in Sydney, Juliet trained in the Cecchetti method with Valerie Jenkins, and later with Christine Keith. She was also fortunate to receive special coaching from the late Valrene Tweedie, a great mentor for Juliet. She was accepted into The Australian Ballet School in 2000 and joined The Australian Ballet in 2003. In 2004 Juliet was a guest artist on The Dancers Company tour, performing as Clara in Leigh Rowles' production of The Nutcracker, a role created on her while a graduating-year student at The Australian Ballet School. In 2008, while still a coryphée, she was chosen by choreographer Matjash Mrozewski to create the title role in his ballet Semele, in which her performance was widely praised, one critic describing her as "captivating". Juliet was promoted to soloist in 2009 and to senior artist in 2011.
