"A definition of poise and steely confidence, every bit the prima ballerina"
Amber Scott joined The Australian Ballet School at age eleven. After graduating as dux, Amber joined The Australian Ballet in 2001. In 2003 she spent four months on a dancer exchange at the Royal Danish Ballet, giving her the opportunity to learn the Bournonville technique firsthand. A lyrical and musical dancer, Amber relishes the many different genres in the company’s repertoire. Performing traditional fairytale and dramatic full-length ballets are career favourites. Amber was promoted to principal artist in 2011. Career highlights include working with Wayne McGregor on Dyad 1929 in 2009, and with Stephen Page on Rites in 2006 and 2008; dancing with guest artist Robert Tewsley during the 2008 Manon season; and performing Odette with Adam Bull in Paris and Manchester in 2008 and Tokyo and Nagoya in 2010.
