Laura Griffiths

Growing up in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria, Laura started jazz dancing at age four before beginning ballet the following year. She undertook full-time studies at the Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School before being accepted into the English National Ballet School at sixteen, where she trained for three years under the guidance of Viviana Durante. Some of the highlights of Laura’s time in London included performing at Sadlers Well’s theatre and Covent Garden, at the Royal Ballet School and Peacock theatre for her graduation performance in George Balanchine’s Who Cares. Joining the Australian Ballet in August 2023, Laura has performed in Anne Woolliams’ Swan Lake and Frederick Ashton’s The Dream and feels grateful to return home to Australia.
