Emma Lloyd

Intro

Since joining the Norwegian National Ballet in 2006, Emma Lloyd has danced classical roles such as Clara in The Nutcracker, the Bluebird pas de deux in Sleeping Beauty, Amor in Nureyev's Don Quixote and the Singing Fairy in Sleeping Beauty. In spring 2014 she dances the role of Olga in Cranko's Onegin.

Emma has danced prominent parts in many modern ballets, such as Forsythe's The Second Detail and Enemy in the Figure, Duato's White Darkness and Multiplicity, and not least in works by Kylián, including Sechs Tänze, No More Play, Tar and Feathers, 27'52", Gods and Dogs, Stepping Stones and Wings of Wax. In autumn 2013 she danced the Princess in Scarlett's Firebird, a role that, like her part in Scarlett's Vespertine was created specifically for her. She has also danced the role of Micaëla in Carmen by the same choreographer, and Kitty in Spucks Anna Karenina.

Originally from Wales, Lloyd trained at the Royal Ballet School in London. Before joining the Norwegian National Ballet, she danced with Dresden SemperOper Ballet, where she had leading roles in Don Quixote and in choreographies by John Neumeier.
