The Company Index
Introduced by David Bintley
Born in Essex, Jamie Bond is one of a number of the next generation of young dancers to be promoted to Principal. Jamie joined the Company from The Royal Ballet in 2003 and has progressed through all ranks of the Company. Over the years he has danced a wide range of leading roles, and handles all areas of the Company's repertory with ease. He has a fine 'English' technique, is a strong partner and an intelligent interpreter of dramatic roles. In this latter area, he has produced some of his finest work and for me his interpretations of Edward II, Sergeant Troy and Petrushka deserve a place amongst the very best.
