NEWS: Iain Mackay set to retire in 2018

NEWS: After an incredible 19 year career here at BRB (including 14 years as a principal) we can confirm today that Iain Mackay will be retiring in 2018, giving his final performances with the Company at @thsh and @r&d. Please join us in wishing Iain all the very best in his new venture as Artistic Director of the Yorkshire Ballet Summer School - where we’re sure he will be just as successful! 

David Bintley has this to say of Iain,

Over the years Iain has proved himself to be one of the company’s very greatest dancers not only for his formidable talents as an artist, but also because of his loyalty, dedication and integrity... Generous to his fellow artists in time, advice and praise he is, quite simply '..the right stuff’, and all of these qualities I know will stand him in great stead for his new role as Artistic Director of the Yorkshire Ballet Summer School.

Good Luck Iain, we will miss you!

David Bintley
