julietburnett You guys! @blochau have created a lovely four-part mini doco series about my journey with my pointe shoes, from my first fitting many moons ago, to haute couture-esque customisations, to how I sew on my ribbons ... all with footage of me having fun and being silly in a studio . As the extension of my physicality, and the second most important (after my body) tool of expression, I've formed a close bond with my pointe shoes over time. Thank you #Bloch for always keeping me on my toes. You guys are total legends | http://www.bloch.com.au/blog/87-juliet-burnett-in-my-shoes | @ausballet #australianballet #pointeshoes #ballet | @tina_g 19h

julietburnett This morning's "steps count" - Pilates, quick walk to the studio and then class. Really enjoying my #fitbit! I must admit that as body-aware as I need to be as a dancer, I've never been so into the idea of quantifying what I do, but I am finding the statistics quite fascinating. The idea of comparing some of the figures with athletes would be interesting, though it needs to be remembered that dance is not a sport. I really admire the commitment and skill of sportspeople; super inspiring stuff. In dance, as an art form, we have to make our physicality say something, mean something, sometimes tell a story or convey an idea, appear effortless and beautiful. Art can be athletic, and there can be art in athleticism, but let's be careful about sweeping statements. I'm proud to be an ambassador for ballet and dance as a highly physical profession, pursued by healthy individuals with bodies full of expressive possibility. Thank you again @wearehandsomebrand for the opportunity for pushing that message in your #mbfwa show , and to @fitbit for this awesome keepsake | #fitspo #ballet #balletfitness #dance #dancefitness #wearehandsome 1w

julietburnett Today is Fashion Revolution Day, marking the anniversary of the tragic disaster at the Bangladesh factory where exploited workers churned out garments for high street fast fashion retailers. #becurious and find out #whomadeyourclothes. A cheap deal for you may mean a sore price paid by the person who made it . Here I'm wearing a custom crossover by my beautiful, über-talented and hardworking friend @hopelesslingerie, who, despite her label's cult status, continues to make all pieces by hand at her home studio in Melbourne (I actually sat and watched whilst she made this for me. There was also much chatter, laughter, and Simpsons quoting). My pointe shoes are custom made by my shoemaker, Tam, who works for @blochau in Sydney. Apart from my vintage shawl, the rest of my outfit is by #Bloch. I'd love to meet your garment makers, @blochau! @fash_rev #dancefashion #balletfashion #ethicalfashion | photo by @rachelkara1 from @thedesignfiles' Melbourne Mornings film in which I also wear @houseofriot and #etiko #nosweatshop sneakers 2w

julietburnett Check it! I feature in the latest installment of @thedesignfiles' beautiful Melbourne Mornings mini-series (co-starring Sadie, rabbit 🐇... @nickthayer was away on tour and working with @mrtommyland so I had to make my own coffee )The team has perfectly captured the morning routine of a professional ballet dancer; and the meditative vibe of my own. Important stuff to share with the Universe as we continue to quash the perception that it is not a serious or full-time profession. | Shout out to Lucy and @_sirap_ for totally kicking goals with this film and the entire project, Marc of True Form Pilates for allowing filming in our session, and to Prue, Chloe and Jemma @ausballet for looking out for me in the prep and filming. | To watch the full short film, click on the link in @thedesignfiles' profile. Enjoy! #julietburnett #ballet #dancer | ooh and repping @blochau @hopelesslingerie @houseofriot #bloch #hopelesslingerie #houseofriot #etiko 2w

julietburnett Yesterday's show of #Giselle was magic. It takes a lot of hard work to realise a dream like this. Perhaps it's equally hard for an artist (there's no tougher critic than oneself) to take pause and be proud of what they've achieved, and say: 'yes, actually, I did a good job.' All I ever want to do is reach out into the audience and bring them on the journey with me onstage. I'm interested in touching souls, in sharing a message, in provoking thoughts and questions. It seems idealistic, but that is why I'm truly grateful to hear from those of you who have been moved by one of my shows. People say dancing is an egotistical pursuit. Maybe it can be, but I've always danced for others as much as for my own fulfillment, and your communication is a reminder of that - that dancing onstage is a dialogue between artist and audience. Giselle is a ballet that allows for that like not many others - the title role calls for a vulnerability and sensitivity that has been a gift to explore onstage with the wonderful @jaredrainfordwright. What an honour to dance on my hometown stage, where my ballet dreams began, watching true artists transport and inspire me. I did a good job, to be here now. #TABGiselle #ausballet #australianballet #ballet #julietburnett 3w

julietburnett And a finale of a different kind! Go team @wearehandsomebrand, it was a pleasure to be invited to be a part of this fantastic concept, with "fitgirls" sharing the catwalk with models. I'm so glad that the art form of ballet is being recognised for its extreme physical demands and athleticism | #wearehandsome #mbfwa 3w

julietburnett Yesterday was a big day: Pilates, company class, Symphonic Variations rehearsal for 2.5hrs, physio treatment, a rehearsal for my Giselle show tomorrow, then a show of Giselle (dancing a couple of my other roles apart from the title role). Phew ! In between all that, somehow managed to fit in a pointe shoe meeting with Sallyanne from @blochau. My maker, Tam, is based in Sydney, and with my feet and their needs constantly evolving, it's so great to be able to order some customisations and have the shoes delivered to me within days. True haute couture! Can't wait to give them a test drive today #bloch #australianballet #pointeshoes @ausballet | photo by @tina_g 3w
