Christopher Wheeldon, President

“I decided to take on the role of President of Benesh International because I firmly believe that BMN is still the most accurate way of recording the original intentions of the choreographer. Most of my works for The Royal Ballet have been recorded in BMN and have subsequently been staged around the world using it as the source for the original choreography.”
