Bio

Courtney spent most of her childhood in Port Headland (The Pibara), Western Australia where she first found her passion for dance.

Courtney completed her classical ballet training in Perth before moving to Brisbane in 2015 as part of Queensland Ballet’s pre-professional program. A highlight of this year was having the opportunity to tour to London with the Queensland Ballet to perform La Sylphide at the London Coliseum.

In 2016, she accepted a position with the West Australian Ballet (WAB), where she performed both classical and contemporary works. When working with Annabelle Lopez Ochoa on one of her famous creations In Transit, Courtney recognised her love for contemporary dance. During Courtney’s two years with WAB she was fortunate enough to work with a range of choreographers such as David Dawson, David Nixon and Lucette Aldous.

Courtney is very thankful to have the opportunity to dance with Bangarra and is especially excited to be part of a company that’s "so significant and special".
