Introducing Lewis

Lewis was born in Wollongong and started dancing at the age of 3. After starting at such a young age, his love for dance was almost instinctual. He attended many local ballet schools in New Castle, before he found the right fit at New Castle Ballet Theatre in 2013. After 4 years including 1 in full-time training, Lewis was accepted into The Australian Ballet School in 2017. He officially joined The Australian Ballet for their 2019 season and is now dancing with Queensland Ballet as a Young Artist.

“To succeed, you only need two things; hard work and time. Always strive for more and love what you do.”
