Originally from Australia, Tonia Looker trained at The Australian Ballet School. In 2007 she was awarded a scholarship to train with the School of American Ballet in New York and Toronto's National Ballet School. Tonia joined Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2008 and in her debut in RED she was described by one critic as a dancer to watch, noting, "her exuberance and dynamic line is noticeable amongst the ranks." She performed Tinkerbell in Peter Pan at the end of 2009 to critical acclaim; "a tempestuous wonder as Tinkerbell," said the Dominion Post.
