Laura Saxon Jones

Australian born, Laura Saxon Jones began dancing at the age of 6 with Christine Atkinson - the Ballet Class, Sydney. With dual nationality, Laura came to New Zealand in 2011 to further her training at the New Zealand School of Dance.

In the NZSD's graduation programme, Laura was chosen to dance Violette Verdy's role in Balanchine's Emeralds (staged by Diana White). Capital Times wrote - 'excerpts of Balanchine's sparkling Emeralds was fluidly danced by all, but especially Laura Jones. This elegant dancer has a lovely, unforced technique and personality that should take her far.'

In her second year of training at the school, Laura toured with the RNZB in Ethan Stiefel and Johan Kobborg's new production of Giselle. Laura was awarded the 2012 Todd Scholarship and joins the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2013.
