Choreographer Andrew McNicol has been announced as English National Ballet School’s first Artistic Associate, continuing to choreograph new works for the students who will also benefit from his informal mentoring support, guidance and inspiration.
Since 2019 McNichol has created five new works for English National Ballet School including two for 2019’s Winter Showcase: Splendour and Finale. In 2020 he choreographed Gradus for the School’s virtual Summer Performance. His socially distanced ballet Of Space & Time was performed at The Roundhouse for the online Winter Showcase and an extract from his latest work, Grace & Gravity, was performed as part of this year’s Summer Performance at The Bloomsbury Theatre.
Artistic Director of English National Ballet School, Viviana Durante said, “this is a really exciting opportunity for our students to learn from and be inspired by one of the leading choreographers working today. As a young artist himself, Andrew is the perfect person to not only create outstanding art with our students but also help them develop as both artists and people.”
