julietburnett There's nothing more to say except that Wayne McGregor's Woolf Works is a masterpiece, and that Alessandra Ferri is one of the greatest artists of our time. Seeing her dance as a young student made me want to become a dancer; I'd no idea before that of one person's power to move (not just physically, but emotionally). Just collecting my jaw from the floor and putting my heart back in my chest... bravi #royalballet so many standout performances. #ROHwoolf #waynemcgregor #alessandraferri | photo by Tristam Kenton 2d

julietburnett This view through the Sydney Harbour headlands from the Manly ferry is one of my favourites in Sydney. e.e. cummings said in the last line of a poem Dad regularly read to us as kids: "For whatever we lose(like a you and a me) it's always ourselves we find in the sea". When I'm on the shoreline, I always look out. I observe the morphing texture of the water and marvel at its beauty, but it's the horizon that draws me in. I spend an eternity fathoming it, wondering what I would find if I could leap up up up into the air, find my wings and fly ... the horizon forever shifting away, teasing ... there is no end point. There is only the journey. And unless you dare to take that leap, how will you ever know what glorious mystery lies beyond that line between our tangible world and the intangible universe? Breathe in, look out. My favourite word: "yes". That is the me in the sea. 5d

julietburnett My body and mind are restless. My heart's compass is inextricably attuned to them, and, open upwards, tells me that it is time to dare.

I'm humbled by the projection of love from you all in light of the news of my departure from The Australian Ballet. An artist's purpose is incomplete without you, the willing participants in our journey. Thank you.
It's a decision a few years in the making. I couldn't leave the place that gave birth to my dreams and allowed me to live them, on a whim. But there are more dreams, beyond. Without the loving support from my husband and family, I might not have been brave enough on my own to take this next step.
I'm grateful to The Australian Ballet, and so excited about the next chapter in my dancing story.

julietburnett Oh, the possibilities... 2w
  •   dancerdivine Where I was born - Manly hospital that is not the beach 2w
  •   jpidaszak Heard the great news what's next for you Julz? 2w
  •   mdgem I hope to see you dancing on Australian stages soon @julietburnett . I remember seeing you on stage first when you joined the Australian Ballet years ago and your breathtaking beautiful dancing has been truly mesmerising to watch. Wishing you all the very best in your next adventure on and off the dance stage. 2w
  •   jennmelbourne Maybe that's a cryptic message! The possibilities!! Going to miss your stage presence so much and your stunning performances, will never get to see you dance #Giselle 😟 wishing you success and happiness always @julietburnett 2w
  •   julietburnett @jpidaszak got a job for me? Tradie Chick?! Lots more dancing in this next exciting chapter xo 2w
  •   julietburnett @mdgem @jennmelbourne thank you both so much. I truly appreciate your support. There is no dancer without an audience xxx 2w

julietburnett It really is very naughty to take photos during a performance and I would only wholeheartedly disapprove of this mystery audience member's photo if it weren't such a nice shot and a beautiful memory to cherish. not #tabgiselle #giselle #australianballet #julietburnett #jaredwright #amandamcguigan 2w
  •   julietburnett @jennmelbourne yes very inconsiderate. They seem to forget that the screen is lit up and that the only other place that's lit is the stage! I'm certainly not condoning that in posting this; and I guess some are just blissful in their ignorance. 2w
  •   jennmelbourne So true @julietburnett but I do agree it is a lovely pic and as a subscriber of a dead centre seat behind a row of 'house/sponsor' seats I have seen this happen and the distraction of light and colour 2w
  •   annavitali Amazing! I wish I got to see it :( 2w
  •   julietburnett @jennmelbourne your support means so much to the dancers! Don't be afraid to give people a gentle reminder about theatre etiquette now and then you have my permission! 2w
  •   ballet.id One ballet school in Indonesia goes to the extent of stopping the performance temporarily when the audience ignore the prohibition to take photos/video. It works for this particular ballet school performance! 2w
  •   jennmelbourne HAha!! @julietburnett I have done this before when of all people a middle age lady was constantly messaging!! And you the dancers bring us so much joy, not uncommon for me to have a tear in my eye after watching a stunning performance, and I have total admiration for your dedication to your craft and since I have been following your Insta you amaze me #beautifulballerina 2w
  •   thomasina I'm reminded of something else that's very distracting: when the company brings in pro photographers for dress rehearsals. Most of them are using DSLR cameras and you can hear the mirrors flapping and clacking away. At Giselle I was wondering why the cuffs of Albrecht's boots were slapping so loudly when he did beating jumps and then realised it was just the cameras had started up! :D 2w
  •   julietburnett @thomasina yes, I never like that either. My parents always took us to the dress rehearsals when I was growing up...so you'd think I'd be more desensitized with the noise! On another note, thank you for your beautiful messages tonight. It means so much to feel that valued by audience members like you. 2w

julietburnett The ballet studio where I took my first dancing steps. I used to wonder why we had to dance in the main part of the room, and not on the tiny stage. Early signs of the performance urge! 🏻 Just had a fantastic coaching session here with the incomparable Darren Spowart (@consciouscontrol), who just *gets it* when it comes to the simple beauty of pure movement. A true guru! 2w

julietburnett Mother's Day Classic 4km walk done with Team Grey Jumper (lame last-minute uniform!) @jasmineburnett and @kylewid! Great to see lots of other keen Sydneysiders walking/running for the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer in the magnificent morning sunshine. We were walking for my grandmother and two aunts in Indonesia who sadly lost their battle with the disease, and for all the other strong women in the world who have too. Also praying for my aunty Tuti and cousin Cipluk who are going through chemo and radio therapy now. And Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mums out there, who brought us all into this Earth. Life is precious, life is short; savour every moment and surround yourself with love and happiness #mothersdayclassic #breastcancerawareness 2w

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 3w
