Island of Culture Youth Ambassador and former Young Dancer of Mann Lloyd Mayor is to be promoted to Soloist at the Martha Graham Contemporary Dance Company.
The former Ballakermeen High School student who joined the New York based company in 2012 will also be performing a duet with the Paris Opera House's Prima Ballerina Aurelie Dupont in the performance of Appalachian Spring on 18th April 2016 at New York City Centre.
As part of Island of Culture, the dancer returned to his old high school to hold a contemporary dance workshop for 20 young dancers. This was followed by a talk where he spoke about his early childhood in Geneva and his teenage years at Ballakermeen where he was inspired by Head Teacher Adrienne Burnett. He then went on to discuss his further education in London and his success in the US.
The Arts Council are very proud to have supported Lloyd in his dance education and wish him the best of luck in his new role at the Martha Graham Contemporary Dance Company. We look forward to seeing him develop further in his future endeavours.
