Q&A With Australian Ballerina Abbey Haller

I recently had the chance to ask Abbey Haller some questions about her journey as a ballerina. Abbey is an amazing dancer, she graces the stage with poise and grace, her passion and dedication for ballet is unmatched. Below are her responses.

Q1: When did you start ballet?

When I was two and a half

Q2: Where do you currently dance?

Queensland national ballet

Q3: How long have you been en pointe for?

4 years I think

Q4: What pointe shoes do you currently wear?

Grishko Novas

Q5: How did you first get involved in ballet?

Always wanted to do ballet since I was 2, I was saying ballet around the house and was dancing in front of the tv and around the house. I was always walking around on my toes trying to be a ballerina. So my mum decided to put me in ballet lessons. And I have  absolutely loved it.

Q6: What is your favourite variation?

Don’t have one, love so many. But currently doing Esmeralda.

Q7: What company would you love to work for?

Have never had a dream company or anything like that. So not sure to be honest. All schools and company’s are great for different reasons.

Q8: Do you have a favourite memory/moment in ballet?

Love every moment but probably just dancing every day at Queensland National Ballet. And watching companies perform on stage.

Q9: Who are your ballet roles models? Dancers that inspire you.

Yanela piñera and Marianela Núñez. And more but these are my favourites

Q10: Best advice you’ve ever received from a teacher?

Hard question, but probably, you can’t be anyone else but yourself so don’t try and be like anyone else when your on stage be the best version of you and do the best that you can.

Q11: Classical or romantic tutu?

Classical

Q12: What do you like to do when you aren’t dancing (your free time)?

Not really ever not dancing and if I’m not dancing I’m doing school but love being with friends in any spare time.
