"Captivating in sincerity."
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. Highlights since then have included being plucked from the rank of coryphée to create the title role in Matjash Mrozewski's Semele, working closely with Graeme Murphy and Janet Vernon in the role of Sophie in The Silver Rose, and fulfilling a lifelong dream to dance her namesake role in Murphy's Romeo and Juliet. She is also a writer and regular contributor to The Australian Ballet’s blog Behind Ballet. Juliet was promoted to soloist in 2009 and to senior artist for the 2011 season.
