Laurel Martyn Laurel Martyn in Vltava, Borovansky Ballet, 1940, National Library of Australia Born Laurel Gill 1916 Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia Occupation Ballet dancer Spouse Lloyd Lawton (1945-) Laurel Martyn (born Laurel Gill, 1916, Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia) was an Australian ballerina. She studied under Kathleen Hamilton in Toowoomba, Marjorie Hollinshed in Brisbane, and Phyllis Bedells in London. In 1934 Martyn won a choreographic scholarship from the Association of Operatic Dancing (later the Royal Academy of Dance) for her first composition Exile. In 1935, she became the second Australian to win the Adeline Genee gold medal. Martyn joined the Vic-Wells Ballet (later Sadler's Wells Ballet) in December 1935 as the first Australian woman to be accepted into the company. By 1938 she was a soloist. In 1938 she returned to Australia and became a dancing teacher. In 1940 she joined Edouard Borovansky's Borovansky Ballet. Martyn left the Borovansky Ballet after her marriage to Lloyd Lawton in 1945. Works After leaving the Borovansky Ballet in 1945 Martyn went on to create some of her own dance works. These included The Sentimental Bloke in 1952 and Mathinna in 1954. These works were inspired by Australian themes as at the time of production, many choreographers were being inspired by Australian themes. The Sentimental Bloke used Australian literature for inspiration, maybe for the first time in Australian dance; and her Mathinna, way ahead of its time, looked at the political, social and racial implications of relationships between Aborigines and white colonial settlers. It was about an Aboriginal girl adopted into white society, most likely as a result of the stolen generation.[1] References ^ Australia Dancing - Martyn, Laurel (1916 - ) Making Australian Dance: Themes and Variations, By Michelle Potter External links Laurel Martyn Collection at the Performing Arts Collection, Arts Centre, Melbourne v · d · eBallet General information History of ballet · Ballet timeline · Glossary of ballet · List of ballets · Ballet music · Ballet company · Ballet Portal Ballet by genre Classical ballet · Contemporary ballet · Neoclassical ballet · Character dance Ballet by region British ballet · French ballet · Italian ballet · Russian ballet (dancers) Ballet technique Balanchine method · Bournonville method · Cecchetti method · Pointe · RAD method · Vaganova method Ballet apparel Ballet shoes · Pointe shoes · Tutu Ballet schools Moscow State Academy of Choreography · Royal Ballet School · La Scala Theatre Ballet School · School of American Ballet · Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet Ballet companies American Ballet Theatre · Australian Ballet · Ballet de l'Opéra National de Paris · Bolshoi Ballet · Mariinsky Ballet · New York City Ballet · The Royal Ballet · Royal Danish Ballet · La Scala Theatre Ballet · Stuttgart Ballet Persondata Name Martyn, Laurel Alternative names Short description Date of birth Place of birth Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia Date of death Place of death This article about an entertainer is a stub.
