Australia Day 2014 Honours


Recommended Posts

Trawling the lists at http://www.gg.gov.au/australia-day-2014-honours-lists I have extracted the following information, of which the final entry will be of interest to ballet goers.  I suspect some will know Street's works too.

Luci Dunn is the first TAB dancer to be acknowledged since the current AD, David McAllister, who is AM. He was (just) preceded by Steven Heathcote, also AM. Graeme Murphy is another level up, at AO. We don't have "imperial" honours down here, so no knights or dames since about 1986. OAM is roughly equivalent to MBE, AM to OBE, AO to CBE.

 

If anyone's interested, Miss Dunn is married to Danilo Radojevic, and they have two daughters.
