After retiring from Classical Ballet in 2016 he has continued to choreograph and perform, in addition to acting, writing, and setting up his own dance company and foundation. He was awarded a CBE for his contribution to dance in 2014, and has received the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Award from The Royal Academy of Dance in recognition of his standing as one of the most influential figures in dance today. He is currently Director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet.
