Royal Ballet Principal Federico Bonelli has been awarded a place on the prestigious Clore Leadership Programme, a programme of personal and professional development. With mentoring support from the Clore Leadership team, a senior cultural leader and a professional coach, each Fellow undergoes a period of accelerated learning adapted to their aspirations, needs and circumstances. This includes a secondment in an organisation different to their own or a period of research connected to an academic institution.

Federico will perform as scheduled in Mayerling, and will return to The Royal Ballet in Spring 2019 to dance in Frankenstein, before returning for the 2019/20 Season. A replacement for his Nutcracker perfumes will be announced shortly.

Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin O’Hare comments “I am thrilled that Federico has been awarded this prestigious place. The Clore Leadership Programme is such a fantastic platform for personal development, for reflection, critical thinking and expansion of horizons. I have no doubt that Federico will be enthused by this opportunity. We look forward to him returning to dance full time with The Royal Ballet in the 2019/20 Season”.
