Steven McRae

Dancer in the Fast Lane

Andrej Uspenski

Steven McRae - Dancer in the Fast Lane gives a close up look at the ballet and dance world's newest, flame-haired star.

Born and raised in the world of Australia's high octane, drag-racing circuit, Steven effortlessly moves between the sophistication of his interpretations of the greatest ballet roles as a Principal of The Royal Ballet, to full throttle blasts of tap. Once again photographer Andrej Uspenski has used his exclusive vantage point as a First Artist with The Royal Ballet to give us glimpses of a dancer becoming a true dance supernova.

'Steven McRae is the most dazzling virtuoso dancer The Royal Ballet has ever shown us. For his clarity of statement, muscular resource, insouciant brilliancy, there is no national precedent.'  Clement Crisp, Financial Times
