  • See the "Boyz" at The Music Center November 7-9th! Tickets and more info: http://bit.ly/1wn4ArK Formed in 2001, BalletBoyz® (previously George Piper Dances) is the brainchild of former Royal Ballet dancers Michael Nunn and William Trevitt. Described by The Guardian as “a paradox of muscular impact and weightless flight,” the all-male company’s evocative style sets new standards for dance as the company graces the stage with ferocity, strength and determination, as well as tremendous elegance and poise. Now entering its second decade, Nunn and Trevitt have re-energized the BalletBoyz dynamic by selecting and training 10 young male dancers from all walks of life. The present membership is drawn from just about every contemporary dance school in the country: Laban, Northern Contemporary, Rambert, The Place, and that well-known vocational hotspot, secondary school. Trevitt explains to Dancingtimes, “...we particularly wanted to have dancers from different backgrounds, not necessarily just with classical training... ones that our eyes were drawn to: with some kind of charisma, a particular movement, an ability or style.” Michael and Billy have established themselves as one of the most cheekily original and innovative forces in modern dance, revolutionizing traditional programming formats, commissioning new work, collaborating with a wide range of cutting-edge talents. They have built a huge following through their groundbreaking TV productions for some of the UK’s leading broadcasters including BBC, Channel 4 and Sky. In the US, they have appeared as guest judges on Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance and hosted their own spinoff series A Chance to Dance on Ovation. Watch ›
