Ballet Boyz is one of the most cheekily original and innovative forces in modern dance.

Led by former Royal Ballet lead dancers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, the company thrills audiences and critics the world over with its distinctive style, fusing spectacular dance both energetic and graceful, with stunning music and film.

This year, Ballet Boyz will return to the stage with The Talent and their thrilling double bill of work by two of the UK’s biggest choreographers.

Liam Scarlett’s Serpent and Russell Maliphant’s Fallen toured extensively during 2013 to capacity audiences and critical acclaim, and now the 10 dancers of Ballet Boyz and The Talent will perform their show-stopping piece in Richmond.

Michael Nunn, Ballet Boyz co-founder and co-artistic director, says: “In performing these two outstanding works, our 10 fantastic male dancers will give audiences the chance to see what brilliant work is being produced by artists in the UK.”

Artistic director William Trevitt says: “This is a perfect opportunity for us to engage with new audiences as well as to perform to Ballet Boyz fans around the country.

“We’ve got a really strong company in The Talent and in Serpent and Fallen, we’ve got a really interesting double bill that I think appeals to a very wide audience.

“We’ll be visiting Treviso – home of prosecco – and Verona in north eastern Italy in March for the first time which we’re also really excited about.”
