Eilis Small

Artist

Born: Canberra, Australia 

Trained: Australian Ballet School

Joined: 2018

Favourite full-length ballet: Romeo and Juliet - the story and music is just incredibly touching and emotional. It moves not only the audience members, but every dancer that has the privilege to perform it.

Proudest on-stage moment: Performing the lead role in Daniela Cardim’s Imminent. It was a privilege to be part of the creation process and to perform a role like that so early in my career.

Proudest off-stage moment: My sister being selected for the 2018 Commonwealth Games team for 800m track at the age of only 16.
