Birmingham Royal Ballet Soloist William Bracewell this week won the Outstanding Male Performance (Classical) award in the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards 2015.
William was nominated for his role as King Louis XIV of France in David Bintley’s new one-act ballet The King Dances, which received its world premiere at Birmingham Hippodrome in June 2015. Bintley created the role of King Louis XIV on William, a role which saw him take on the character of the 14-year-old King of France.
The winners of the National Dance Awards were announced on Monday at a ceremony in central London. Other nominees in the same category were Matthew Ball (The Royal Ballet), Erik Cavallari (Scottish Ballet), Kimin Kim (St Petersburg Ballet Theatre) and Vadim Muntagirov (The Royal Ballet).
