Director, The Royal Ballet
Kevin was trained by Louise Browne, then at The Royal Ballet School and, through an exchange programme, Royal Danish Ballet. He joined SWRB and was promoted to Principal in 1990 (BRB). His repertory included all the leading classical roles and works by Balanchine, Cranko, Van Manen, Tudor and Tharp, aside from numerous international guest appearances. He also created many roles, working with Ashton, De Valois, MacMillan, David Bintley and Peter Wright, among others. He retired from dancing in 2000 to work with the RSC, training in company management. He returned to BRB as Company Manager in 2001, joined The Royal Ballet as Company Manager in 2004 and then become Administrative Director in 2009. He is a governor of The Royal Ballet School, and was appointed to the board of Dance UK in September 2013 (a position he had previously held while a Principal with BRB).
Kevin became Director of The Royal Ballet on the retirement of Monica Mason in July 2012.
