Adriana Harper

Born in Auckland, Adriana Harper grew up in small-town Coromandel. She completed her professional training at New Zealand School of Dance in 2004, graduating with the Todd Corporation Scholarship. Adriana joined Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2005 and has since danced the roles of Lucy Westenra in Dracula, the short step sister in Cinderella, Kitri in Don Quixote and featured roles in Esquisses, Concerto and A Million Kisses to My Skin about which US dance critic Allan Ulrich said her work showed "a spiralling exuberance that, I suspect, won't be a Southern Hemisphere secret much longer." In 2011's TOWER Tutus on Tour, the NZ Herald said Adriana was in "stunning form" and had found her true calling as the "wily and wayward Cat" in Pinocchio. Adriana appeared as Bluebird in RNZB's 2011 Meridian Season of The  Sleeping Beauty.
