English National Ballet School has appointed Amanda Skoog as its new Executive Director from the end of August 2022, working alongside Artistic Director Viviana Durante.
Currently a Senior Producer at the Royal Opera House, Skoog has more than 25 years’ experience in Arts Management in roles including Managing Director of Royal New Zealand Ballet, Executive Director of Shobana Jeyasingh Dance, Assistant Director of Central School of Ballet and Education Manager at English National Ballet. She also currently serves as Chair of One Dance UK.
Durante said, “Amanda is the perfect person to join the school at a time when we are establishing what dance training looks like in a post-pandemic world and as we look to build on the next chapter in the school’s rich and vibrant history and become a true global powerhouse in dance education.”
Skoog succeeds Jon Singleton, who stepped down at the end of January. Interim Executive Director Maggie Morris will continue in the role until summer 2022.
