Birmingham Royal Ballet Appoints New Ballet Master
18 June 2009
Birmingham Royal Ballet has announced that Dominic Antonucci is to be the Company's new Ballet Master. Dominic will take up the role at the beginning of next season, following his retirement from the Company as a Principal dancer next month.
Dominic joined the Company as a Soloist in 1994, from American Ballet Theatre and was promoted to Principal in 2003. As well as dancing most of the major roles in the repertoire Dominic has, over the years, developed a range of skills through his work with the Department of Learning and Summer teaching and coaching in Japan, and the USA. He has also become a regular Company teacher over the past few years and recently spent a month working with the National Ballet of Japan at the New National Theatre in Tokyo where he coached Principals and generally oversaw the revival of Sir Frederick Ashton's Cinderella.
David Bintley, Director, today said, 'I feel sure that his experience and skills along with his ability as a communicator will make Dominic a fine addition to the ballet staff.'
Dominic's final performances as a Principal Dancer with the Company will take place in Salford during July when the Company performs Sir Fred and Mr B and Love and Loss.
