Georgia Baxter joined the Royal New Zealand Ballet in August 2019 as an apprentice and was promoted to company Artist at the end of the 2020 season. A recent highlight for Georgia was performing as Moth in Liam Scarlett’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 

Since joining RNZB, Georgia has performed in George Balanchine’s Serenade, William Forsythe’s Artifact II and Loughlan Prior’s Hansel and Gretel. In 2020, she performed an array of roles in The Sleeping Beauty, including Little Red Riding Hood and the Fairy of Joy. In the 2021 season of Tutus on Tour, Georgia further demonstrated her versatility through classical and contemporary works, performing Pas de Quarte, Sarah Foster-Sproull’s Ultra Folly, Mário Radačovský’s Romeo and Juliet balcony pas de deux and Andrea Schermoly’s Within Without.
