The Balletboyz at Bramber

3rd May 2016

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.

Matthew and Matt from the company visited Bramber for workshops with Year 3 and 4 and performed a short piece to the whole school. The children (and adults) thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

Some feedback from our children
 
"Thank you so so so much because I used to think that ballet was really girly and it's definitely inspired me!"
 
"I think it was a great experience and if I could I would do it again!"
 
"Thank you for coming. I now want to maybe be a ballet dancer when I am older. Hope you had fun teaching us."
 
"I loved all the dances you taught us, especially the wave dance and I now know ballet is also for boys. Have you ever thought of going on Britain's got talent?"
