Balletboyz

Balletboyz (formerly known as George Piper Dances), founded in 2001 by Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, has made a dramatic mark on the British dance scene. It has thrilled audiences and dance critics alike with its exhilarating mix of award winning repertoire, performance style and high artistic standards.
Michael and Billy, previously lead dancers with The Royal Ballet, became better known for their Ballet Boyz programmes on Channel 4 which followed their every move during The Royal Ballet’s nomadic years whilst the Royal Opera House was under renovation. Having developed a taste for film and sharing the highs and lows of creating a show, the film work has become intrinsic to Balletboyz performances and is a popular way of demystifying the art of dance and the choreographic process.
Since 2001 the Company has earned an enviable reputation for commissioning new dances and now has numerous works in its repertoire crafted by leading choreographers, including Rafael Bonachela, Michael Clark, William Forsythe, Russell Maliphant and Christopher Wheeldon.
