Ballet Boyz

Michael Nunn, William Trevitt

PaperBack (25 Mar 2011)

Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, aka the Ballet Boyz, are pioneers in making modern dance accessible and entertaining through their celebrated stage and television work. 

They met at the Royal Ballet School and went on to become leading dancers with The Royal Ballet. In 2001 they set up their own company, Ballet Boyz, and established themselves as one of the most original and dynamic partnerships in modern dance: revolutionising programming formats; commissioning new choreography; collaborating with a wide range of cutting-edge talents and building a following through their regular television appearances on the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky Arts.

To celebrate 10 years as the Ballet Boyz, Nunn and Trevitt have hand-picked images from their company and personal archives to provide a unique and intimate insight into one of dance's most prolific, enduring and exciting partnerships.

‘Trevitt and Nunn built Ballet Boyz on their own dance talents. They’ve now moved the company on to a new generation, relaunching it as a larger, all-male troupe... Together, they’ve make a team with fluid movement and plenty of swagger.’ Independent

'Beautiful photographs.... a souvenir book of their repertoire... Their many fans will love the book, another memento for ardent ballet amateurs and photography buffs' British Theatre Guide

'Lavishly illustrated… This anniversary book offers a tantalising glimpse into life on the road with the Boyz, its tone firmly celebratory. A must for anyone interested in the art of movement.' What's On Stage

'A glossy folio paperback; a modest coffee table book which contains some gorgeous images of what the boyz have got up to in the ten or so years since they left The Royal Ballet… The book is a lovingly designed retrospective of the last decade of Trevitt and Nunn’s work, but leaves one wanting to know more. Then again, dance is a wordless art form about movement rather than dialogue – and perhaps this is what Trevitt and Nunn are recreating through this book.' Exeunt Magazine
