ABOUT THE COMPANY
Founded in 2000, BalletBoyz established itself as one of the most original and innovative forces in modern dance: revolutionising programming formats, commissioning work and collaborating with cutting-edge talents. The company’s chief aim is to challenge, excite and enlighten audiences through its work, bringing together elements from diverse realms of the arts including composers, artists, designers and filmmakers.
The company has won numerous awards and nominations including an Olivier Award, National Dance Awards, an International Emmy and The Golden Prague and Rose d’Or Awards twice. In 2013 BalletBoyz won Best Independent Company in the National Dance Awards, Best Modern Choreography for Russell Maliphant’s Fallen, while Michael Hulls won the 2014 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance for his work with BalletBoyz. In 2016, the company’s first feature film was broadcast: Young Men won The Golden Prague Arts Award (2017) and the Rose d’Or in the Arts Category, rewarding originality, quality and creativity.
Alongside their stage and screen work, the company is engaged in many projects which offer dance opportunities to those who find themselves marginalised by traditional dance offerings. Classes, workshops and residencies are delivered from the BalletBoyz studios, working with a diverse range of participants across a variety of dance disciplines.
BalletBoyz continue to inspire, educate and showcase dance in the best possible ways, bringing our creations to as wide an audience as possible.
