Joseph Caley



Introduced by David Bintley

Joseph Caley joined Birmingham Royal Ballet from the Royal Ballet School in 2005 and his precocioustechnical qualities were quickly tested by roles in The Seasons, The Sleeping Beauty and . CyranoDue to injuries within the Company, Joe's breakthrough came at an early age with his debut as Albrecht in Giselle, and from that point on he hasn't looked back with leading roles in Coppélia, The Nutcracker, The Two Pigeons and Sylvia, amongst others, quickly following. Recent performances have demonstrated not only a mature technique and natural partnering skills, but also a growing confidence in stage craft and acting ability, notable especially in his Oberon in Ashton's The Dream and as Gabriel Oak in Far from the Madding Crowd. Despite the fact that Joe has attained the rank of Principal and has a number of impressive performances behind him, I know that the best is yet to come and I look forward to his career with excitement.
