NBT News

CONGRATULATIONS - Director of the Year - 30 Jan 2004

Congratulations to Artistic Director David Nixon, voted Director of the Year by readers of Dance Europe magazine, from everyone at Northern Ballet Theatre. As the magazine states "Nixon was appointed as Northern ballet Theatre's artistic director to rescue the company from a shaky period and to restore a decisive hand over a company still coming to terms with the untimely loss of its pioneering director Christopher Gable"

Nixon is duly credited for focusing on the dancers, nurturing and developing what he calls "a beautiful group of people". He has also added a clutch of hit ballets to the company repertoire including his own Madame Butterfly, Wuthering Heights and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Making the company's last autumn/winter season 2003, the most successful ever.

Dance Europe magazine concludes"His astute direction has served Northern ballet Theatre (which won Company of the Year in 2002) well, and the company is now firmly back on its feet."

Congratulations also to Principal Artist Jonathan Ollivier, who appears in the top 20 'voted for dancers' in the same poll. The magazine states "Jonathan Ollivier received a huge share of the vote"and one excited voter claims "He's just amazing". Well done Jonathan.
