Carlos Acosta is known internationally for his grace and athleticism as a dancer. Having performed in some of the worlds greatest companies including Paris Opera, the Bolshoi, ABT, and England's Royal Ballet, it is his tremendous ability to convey emotion, and the sheer joy of dancing that transcends to every member of the audience, which people remember the most. Carlos has danced almost every classical role from Macmillan to Balanchine right through to his more recent contemporary roles and never fails to bring a unique quality and magnetism to every movement. As well as a dancer and choreographer, Carlos has also written his very honest and heartfelt autobiography, 'No Way Home' - which proved a UK bestseller and went on to be published in several other countries including North America, Australia and Germany. Now he has even completed his first work of fiction.
