Étoile de Janvier1 January, 2013
As of today Remi assumes the mantle of principal dancer with Dutch National Ballet, one of the world’s top ranking classical ballet companies. Principal is the highest level obtainable for a professional dancer (in France the title is elegantly dubbed ‘étoile’) and is the culmination of a life in ballet. Remi started dancing in Adelaide aged four and went on to perform with The Australian Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. He has since traversed many of the world’s most glittering stages, including the Sydney Opera House, London Coliseum, Théâtre du Châtelet Paris, Mikhailosky St Petersburg and New York’s Metropolitan Opera House. Announcing the promotion, Dutch National Ballet artistic director Ted Brandsen praised Remi’s theatricality and sensitivity as a performer.
