BalletBoyz, the internationally celebrated dance company, has opened applications for their popular Dancer’s Course. Brand new for 2016/17 is the inclusion of ATCL Level 4 Diploma in Performing Arts (Contemporary Dance) awarded by Trinity College London.
Successful dancers will have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the young BalletBoyz company, becoming multi-skilled, reflective and employable performers.
The application process offers men and women from all backgrounds across the UK the chance to apply for the course which is delivered over three 10-week terms in Kingston upon Thames, just outside London. Working closely with the BalletBoyz dancers, successful applicants will be coached and mentored by some of the leading teachers and choreographers working in dance today.
Michael Nunn OBE and William Trevitt OBE, Artistic Directors of BalletBoyz said: ‘We’re hugely excited about the new inclusion of the ATCL Level 4 Diploma in our Dancer’s Course. The students work incredibly hard, develop new skills and technique and the ATCL offers the opportunity to have this work recognised by the both the dance community and wider industry. The course presents an amazing opportunity for young male and female dancers to develop into professionals alongside industry leaders.’

BalletBoyz was co-founded in 2001 by Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, who met when they were dancers with the Royal Ballet. BalletBoyz immediately made a huge impact on the dance scene creating the TV documentaries BalletBoyz and BalletBoyz II and curating the 4Dance season for Channel 4.
Since then BalletBoyz has become one of the UK's top five dance companies making exciting, entertaining, award-winning art for stage and screen. The company tours nationally and internationally. BalletBoyz have pioneered the use of film and technology in performance and in 2016 will be the first dance company to release a full length feature film. www.balletboyz.com
