This week in dance news...

The beautiful Lucinda Dunn, principal dancer of the Australian Ballet has just announced her retirement after 23 phenomenal years with the Aussie Ballet. "After spending more than half my life with The Australian Ballet, it feels like a lifetime ago that I joined the company as a 17-year-old" Said Dunn - "I'm extremely fortunate to have had a lasting career and been a part of history within The Australian Ballet, and am privileged to have had such a satisfying and inspiring career."

Dunn, who is the longest serving Ballerina the company has ever had will be taking her final curtsey at the end of the Manon season in Sydney on April 3rd. Artistic Director David McAllister said "One of my proudest moments as a new Artistic Director in 2001 was announcing that Lucinda would be promoted to principal artist. Since that time she has been a shining beacon of The Australian Ballet - a true ballerina." We wish you all the best with this new chapter in your life Lucinda, your presence and vivacity on stage will be missed by fans of the Australian Ballet everywhere.
