Blair Wood began his dance training in his native New Zealand. He appeared with the Royal New Zealand Ballet in their production of La Sylphide at the age of 10, and later performed in many productions, including national tours, which enabled him to explore his full range of performing skills. In 2005/2006, Blair undertook further dance training at Ecole Ballet Studios in Sydney, under the direction of Ashley Killar and Jane Allyn. He joined Queensland Ballet’s Professional Year in 2008, performing in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, International Gala 2008, and Swan Lake as well as regional Queensland tours of Carmen and The Amazing Magician.
He was the recipient of the George Hartnett Funerals award in 2008. Blair remained in the Professional Year program in 2009 and then joined the Company as a Trainee Dancer in January 2010. Blair was promoted to Company Dancer in 2011.
