The Australian Ballet bids fairwell to a principal dancer.
It has just been announced that principal dancer Rachel Rawlins, of the Australian Ballet will be retiring next month. Rawlins was born in Canberra and trained in Melbourne, before going on to dance for the Royal Ballet, and then The Australian Ballet, in a career that spanned more than two decades.
“Her delicacy is divine, her abandon is breathtaking and her artistry will show you what ballet can achieve” (Madame Butterfly 2011). “She’s superb; a prima ballerina if ever there was one” (Sugar Plum Fairy, Peter Wright's The Nutcracker 2010)
