Vadim Muntagirov to join The Royal Ballet
Vadim Muntagirov has resigned from English National Ballet to accept a contract at The Royal Ballet. He will be leaving English National Ballet at the end of February and will not now perform in the new works by Russell Maliphant, Akram Khan and Liam Scarlett at the Barbican, nor Romeo & Juliet in-the-round at the Royal Albert Hall as previously announced.
Vadim joined English National Ballet in 2009, straight from school, as a First Artist. He was promoted to First Soloist in 2010, Principal 2011 and Lead Principal 2012.
“Vadim is a beautiful dancer whom we have cherished at English National Ballet where he has spent his whole career. We are sad to see him go but wish him all the best for the future.” Tamara Rojo, Artistic Director, English National Ballet
