Born in Wellington, Antonia moved to Canberra as a toddler and
started taking ballet lessons at the age of four. She trained at
the Kim Harvey School of Dance before returning to Wellington in
2004 to attend New Zealand School of Dance. She joined Royal New
Zealand Ballet in 2007 and has performed in every production since
then. Her roles have included, the Fairy Godmother in the Lion
Foundation Season of Cinderella, the Young Nurse in
The Nutcracker, the title roles in The MEridian Season of
La Sylphide and Carmen and the Lilac Fairy in The
Meridian Season of The Sleeping Beauty.
NBR remarked that Antonia's performance as the Sylph
"shone through with a lustrous richness" and in 2011, the NZ Herald
commended her performance in TOWER Tutus on Tour's
Pinocchio, saying, "Antonia Hewitt is the ultimate Blue
Fairy, all willowy grace."
