Lydie Petit has been dancing and performing since early childhood. Born in France, she trained in contemporary dance with Paris group, Chorespace before expanding her repertoire to include Ballet, Modern, and Flamenco.
Since migrating to Australia in 2005, Lydie has trained intensively with Diana Reyes Flamenco studio.
Lydie's strong passion for performing and choreography has led her to fuse and play with many styles of dance.

Lydie Petit is the winner of the Audi Art Prize 2007, for her interpretation in dance of the iconic design and athletic performance of the new Audi TT Coupe. With the Audi Art Prize entry she has taken the opportunity to further develop the idea of mixing contemporary and classic styles with the creation of the dance piece “Exhale”. The dance and choreography is an amalgamation of Flamenco and Contemporary styles, technology and fluidity, style and movement. The choreography performed by Petit in the 88-second film entitled 'Exhale' represents a series of breaths, building to a moment of tension at the point of suspension and finally exploding with a burst of manic energy on the exhale.
