HOME OF THE BALLETBOYZ
Studio 52a Home of the BalletBoyz…
BalletBoyz is the brainchild of Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt who founded the company in 2001.
Michael and Billy met at the Royal Ballet Upper School and joined the Royal Ballet together in 1987. During their twelve years at The Royal Ballet between them they danced all the Principal roles.
In 2000 they co-founded BalletBoyz. They danced all over the world for ten years and won numerous awards and accolades working with leading dancers, choreographers and designers.
2010 saw their retirement from the stage and the first edition of the groundbreaking project theTALENT. Michael and Billy selected eight young male dancers from a variety of backgrounds and worked with them closely, mentoring and coaching to create a company of first-class performers. Now in its fifth year, the Company has expanded to ten dancers and regularly tours the UK and internationally. In 2013 BalletBoyz won the National Dance Award for Best Independent Company.
Michael and Billy are Ambassadors for His Royal Highness Prince Charles’s charity Children and The Arts. They were made OBEs in 2012 for their services to dance.
