Martin Harvey
(Royal Ballet)

Martin Harvey has emerged in recent years as a dance artist with a wide dramatic range and his passionate interpretation of the role of Onegin was an outstanding milestone in a career that has embraced not only many soloist roles for the Royal Ballet but frequent forays into modern work for Cathy Marston, Vanessa Fenton and William Tuckett. He has also performed with Irek Mukhamedov and Company. Harvey joined the Royal Ballet in 1996 after playing the Rake in the Royal Ballet School performance and displayed immediate early promise before assuming the important roles of Mercutio, Espada, and Lescaut. All Harvey's performances combine a strong physique with commitment and intensity.

Robert Parker
(Birmingham Royal Ballet)

Born in Hull, Robert Parker trained at the Royal Ballet School and joined BRB in 1994. He received early acclaim when he danced the Second Seminarian in Carmina burana at the Royal Opera House in 1996. His charismatic stage presence and energy have led David Bintley to create a number of roles on him, including the Sailor in The Nutcracker Sweeties, Hamlet in The Shakespeare Suite, and most recently Arthur and Mordred in Arthur. Robert has also excelled in such varied repertory as the Young Man in The Two Pigeons, Siegfried in Swan Lake, the Hoofer in Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, and In the Upper Room. Robert was promoted to Principal in 1999. In 2001 Robert was nominated for an Olivier Award and a Critics Circle National Dance Award.

Yosvani Ramos
(English National Ballet)

Yosvani Ramos holds the distinction of being the only dance artist to have been nominated every year since the Critics' Circle National Dance Awards came into being. His classical technique allied to a striking stage presence, have always singled him out as a dancer of special quality. Born in Cuba, he trained at the National Ballet School before joining the Jeune Ballet de France and Ballet de l Opera National de Paris after winning the Gold Medal at the Paris International Ballet Competition in 1998. He joined ENB in 1999 and was promoted to Senior Soloist in 2000 and became the company's youngest male Principal dancer at the start of the new season. Ramos dances most of the leading roles of the classical repertoire and highlights of this year include leading roles in Coppelia, Nutcracker and Melody on the Move and dancing in his own choreography at the Linbury Theatre.
