Scottish dancer Reece Clarke is an Artist with The Royal Ballet. He trained at The Royal Ballet School and entered into the Company in 2013.
Clarke grew up in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire. He and his three elder brothers trained at the Janis Ridley School of Dance in Coatbridge before winning places at The Royal Ballet School; Reece entered the Lower School in 2006, the first time in the School's history that four boys from the same family have all trained at the School. Awards while at the School include the Lynn Seymour Competition in his second year and Young British Dancer of the Year in 2012, for which he performed extracts from La Bayadère and The Sleeping Beauty. Performances while at the School include a role in En bateau.
Clarke's appearances with the Company have included dancing with the corps de ballet in Don Quixote, The Rite of Spring, Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty.
