Nicholas Cunninngham

Born in Australia, Nicholas Cunningham trained at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. After completing an Advanced Diploma of Performing Arts, he was awarded the Marten Bequest Travelling Scholarship for Dance 2005/2006. He then moved to Paris in late 2005, to dance at the Bal du Moulin Rouge.
In 2006 Nicholas made his debut on West End in Broadway’s Tony Award-winning show Movin’ Out, directed and choreographed by Twyla Tharp. Nicholas joined Matthew Bourne’s company New Adventures in late 2006, starting an international tour with Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, performing in seven different countries worldwide.
Commercial work includes: McCains airing on ITV and Channel 4, Orangina, the gala launching Toyota’s 2009 range of cars and the opening of Terminal 5. He has assisted in two screen productions: the feature film The Boat That Rocked, directed by Richard Curtis and a video for the launch of the YSL summer range, in which he also appeared.
He was the Associate Choreographer on the Pet Shop Boys “Pandemonium” world tour 2009/2010. That same year he performed in the Olivier Award winning Revival of La Cage aux Folles on West End as Hanna from Hamburg. While performing in La Cage Nicholas was fortunate to be in the cast of the feature film/musical Nine, directed by Rob Marshall.
Nicholas made his Broadway Debut in the Tony Award winning Broadway Revival of La Cage aux Folles in 2010. He was the Associate Choreographer and Dance Captian. He also was seen on stage 8 shows a week as Hanna from Hamburg.
In 2012 Nicholas performed with Broadway’s Phantom of the Opera, whilst there he performed in the 24th Anniversary and the 10,000th performance as the Slave Master/Soloist Dancer.
He toured in extensively throughout Europe with Romeo and Juliet, playing the principal role of Paris, and most recently finished another world tour with New Adventures, and Matthew Bourne as a featured dancer.
Between Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, working with new artists, choreographing, and working bi coastal in San Francisco with the San Francisco Opera, Nicholas is proud and excited to be teaching at the Summer Intensive here in New York City.
