Ballet Dance: Dancer's favourite tutu

ballet dancers
In The Australian Ballet’s 2011 calendar 13 of the company’s leading ladies are featured wearing their favorite tutu. Dancers chose powder-puff, Romantic and ultra-modern tutus from a wide range of works including The Sleeping Beauty, Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude, Swan Lake, Firebird and more. Soloist Juliet Burnett sheds light on the tutu – the ballerina’s tool of the trade – in the calendar’s in-depth foreword.

For the calendar The Australian Ballet teamed up with photographer Jo Duck to shoot three dancers wearing their top tutu. The Melbourne-based photographer has worked with fashion labels Limedrop, chip chop! and magazines YEN, Fallen and Vice among many others. Before Jo Duck’s ballet shoot, we bumped into the studio with a mountain of tutus, three ballerinas, a make-up artist from Napoleon Perdis and their endless lipstick supply.
