Ballet in Ballarat

Ballarat has such beautiful locations for any form of Photography, for Ballet and Dance it can’t be surpassed

What a great day I had in Ballarat with Alexia and her Mum

Time is always a limiting factor, so we only had an hour and a half*

We chose the beautiful Botanical Gardens and Lake, too early for the Begonias but the lawns were at their best.

Having some images made in her home town was special for Alexia, Ballarat is where her dream started. 

More images are on our web pages and Instagram account.


 Alexia’s love of dancing began at the age of 5, when she began taking ballet lessons at Anita Coutts School of Dance, Ballarat. Following 10 years of classical training in her hometown Ballarat, Alexia was accepted into The Australian Ballet School where she trained from 2011 until 2013.

Late 2013, Alexia moved to Sydney to begin training with Studio Tibor where she joined the pre-professional full time training program for the next 18 months. During this time Alexia was accepted and performed at the Youth America Grand Prix Finals in New York City (2014).

After returning to Melbourne in 2015, Alexia joined Melbourne City Ballet’s pre-professional bridging program “Finishing Year” before relocating to Kentucky (USA) to join Louisville Ballet for a two year scholarship with the company as part of their Trainee Program.

Alexia returned home to Melbourne City Ballet in 2017, commencing in the role of Junior Artist with the company during our national tour of A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2017.”
