"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 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 with choreographers Wayne McGregor, Glen Tetley and Graeme Murphy, career development abroad at The Royal Ballet and San Francisco Ballet, and fulfilling a lifelong dream to dance her namesake role in Murphy's Romeo and Juliet. Juliet also writes regularly for Dance Tabs website and The Australian Ballet’s blog Behind Ballet. Juliet became a soloist in 2009 and a senior artist in 2011.
