We proudly welcome Chantelle Lee Lockhart and James Boyd as our newest company dancers.

Chantelle is a proud descendent of the Dharawal Nation as well as the people of the Eora Nation. After growing up on the NSW Central Coast and Muswellbrook in the Upper Hunter, Chantelle studied dance at the National College of Dance in Newcastle, and the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance in Austria. 

James Boyd is a proud Aboriginal man with connections to the Kunja and Muruwari people of south-western Queensland, and Wakka Wakka nation, south-eastern Queensland. He joins the company as a Russell Page Graduate after recently completing his studies at NAISDA and receiving his Advanced Diploma in Dance. 

Thank you to the Sherry-Hogan Foundation, The Ross Trust and our individual donors for their generous support of the Russell Page Graduate Program.
