Sir Robert Helpmann
Did You Know?
I was always nervous about coming back to Australia which was a complete hangover of the days when I left when ballet was not accepted, when I was not accepted, when I was considered a freak for wanting to be a ballet dancer. And, to be 100% honest, I rather dreaded coming back...
He was a student at Prince Alfred College, but left at age 14 to completely whole-heartedly pursue a career/life in ballet.
Frequently partnered with Margot Fonteyn and Moira Shearer
