Heidi Martin

Heidi grew up in Auckland and began ballet classes at the age of four. After training at Mt Eden Ballet Academy, Heidi moved to Melbourne when she was 17 to join The Australian Ballet School where she completed an Advanced Diploma of Dance.

In 2007 she became a corps de ballet member of The Australian Ballet and was promoted to Coryphee in 2011. In the ten years that Heidi danced with The Australian Ballet she performed in many classical and contemporary ballets and has performed on stages all over the world including Tokyo, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai & London.

In 2017 Heidi decided to hang up her pointe shoes and move back to New Zealand. She has since completed a Bachelor of Communication and began as Dance Education Coordinator with The New Zealand Dance Company in 2019. Heidi also teaches ballet and hopes to pass on her knowledge and passion of dance and inspire young New Zealanders to pursue a career in dance.

In her spare time, Heidi likes to climb mountains and take road trips around New Zealand.
