Talk about suspending disbelief. The Bolshoi Ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty is so wholesome and natural that the audience last Tuesday, including myself, lapped up the constant stream of superb, even if extremely familiar, dancing with an eagerness you could taste in the normally austere confines of the Royal Opera House.

Profile of Lucinda Dunn of Australian Ballet:

Lucinda Dunn needs a strong coffee in the morning just like the rest of us mere mortals. But that might be where the similarity ends between this elite ballerina and a regular woman approaching 40 years of age.

Dunn has fine-tuned her body to a point where she is now breaking new ground in ballet. When she turns 40 in December, she will be the oldest full-time ballerina in The Australian Ballet's history. That's about as rare as an Olympic gymnast still going at 22. It is an extraordinary achievement, one that has the potential to redefine a dancer's longevity.
