Ballet Boyz

Quick Reference

London-based dance company founded in 2001 by former Royal Ballet principals William Trevitt and Michael Nunn; originally also known as George Piper Dances. The company was noted for commissioning a wide range of contemporary choreographers, including Christopher Wheeldon, Michael Clark, and Russell Maliphant, and for Trevitt and Nunn's individual performances. In 2010 the ‘second generation’ Ballet Boyz was launched, with eight younger male dancers and Trevitt and Nunn as directors. The two have also become noted documentary makers. They directed and starred in Channel 4's landmark television series Ballet Boyz and won a 2008 International Emmy for their documentary Strictly Bolshoi.
