Meet Corps de Ballet dancer

Lucien Xu


Lucien (Yipeng) was born in the small city of XuZhou, China. His father started him in dance lessons to build his strength and help combat childhood illnesses. At age eleven Lucien was selected to study at the exclusive Beijing Dance Academy. In 2014 he received a full scholarship to train at The Australian Ballet School, going on to tour with The Dancers Company in both 2014 and 2015. Yipeng’s favourite performer is Marianela Núñez, because he loves “the effects she makes when she dances”. He joined The Australian Ballet in 2016.
