Meet new Company dancer Liam Green

13 February 2019

At 15, Liam was accepted into the Advanced Diploma of Dance at West Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), being the youngest to enter into the program. He has trained with Dynamic Performing Arts and The Graduate College of Dance, and was a member of the Corps de Ballet with the West Australian Ballet for four and a half years before being promoted to Demi Soloist for a year.

Q. What attracted you to joining Sydney Dance Company?

Sydney Dance Company is an esteemed, internationally recognised dance company we are lucky to have in Australia. There’s no better way to stay in my home country while working with a company of this calibre. The complexity and athleticism of the works produced are very attractive qualities I wanted to experience.

Q. If you weren’t a professional dancer, what else would you do and why?

As I’m studying a Bachelor of Commerce at UWA part time, my alternative activity would be within the realms of economics or finance; I would be in some sort of banking or corporate finance position. Numbers and financial activities have always interested me.

Q. What have been the highlights of your dance career so far?

I have had the pleasure of working with Annabelle Lopez Ochoa twice before, with her piece In Transit being an amazing and challenging work. Performing Edward Clug’s Radio and Juliet as my first ever professional performance was also a special moment.

Q. What are you most looking forward to at Sydney Dance Company in 2019?

It would have to be the international tour. For one and a half months we will travel around Europe to four different countries, while getting to perform.

Q. What do you do with your time off?

I love a good restaurant, and wine. If I’m not working or studying, I’ll be trying somewhere I’ve not been before. There’s so much to explore in Sydney, I’m going to try and eat my way around the whole city.
