Welcome back to The Australian Ballet! How has the transition been back into full-time dancer mode after having your baby George?
AK: It has been challenging but same time very joyful. I definitely missed the ballet studio and the stage!
Your first performance back was as one of the most challenging roles in ballet, Juliet in John Cranko’s Romeo & Juliet, how did it feel to finally step onto the stage as Juliet after so many years of postponements?
AK: The role of Juliet has been on my ballet bucket list for a long time and it was so special to finally debut as Juliet alongside my husband Chengwu as Romeo after pandemic and maternity leave.
