After graduating, Liedtke performed with Australian dance companies such as Dance North and Australian Dance Theatre.

Liedtke gained international recognition in 2007 when she was appointed the new artistic director of the Sydney Dance Company, succeeding Graeme Murphy. Unfortunately, just a few months after her appointment, Liedtke was tragically killed in a road accident in Sydney at the age of 29.
