Eloise Fryer

Introducing Eloise

Eloise was born in Sandringham, Victoria. Her parents were both former dancers of The Australian Ballet and she started dancing at age three after watching them teach. She trained at The Jane Moore Academy of Ballet until the age of 16, while also taking classes at her parents’ adult-ballet studio City Dance Centre. Eloise competed in many competitions throughout Victoria from the age of eight, frequently gaining first place. She achieved her RAD solo seal before joining The Australian Ballet in 2008. Eloise’s favourite ballet of all time is Romeo and Juliet; she also loves the big classics.
