Jade Wood is one of six nominees for the 2014 Telstra Ballet Dancer Award. Here’s our chat with this talented dancer.
What was the first ballet you saw that blew you away, and why?
I can’t remember my very first ballet, but I remember when I was a student of The Australian Ballet School, we sometimes received free tickets to the company’s performances, and my friends and I went to almost every show of Don Quixote. It was amazing seeing all the different casts and it all looked like such fun!
