    Nikolaus Wourms

    A native of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, Nikolaus began studying ballet at the Academy of Dance in Dickinson, North Dakota, then studied at the Myles Reif Performing Arts Center in Grand Rapids. He also studied at the Cecchetti Council of America’s summer program in Holland, Michigan. A graduate of the School of the Minnesota Ballet, Nikolaus is in his twelfth season with the Minnesota Ballet. He has danced such roles as the Prince and Cavalier in The “Manhattan” Nutcracker, Von Rothbart in Swan Lake Act II, Prince in Cinderella, Theseus in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Count in Dracula, Prince Charmant in Sleeping Beauty, and in Salvatore Aiello’s Clowns and Others, Antony Tudor’s Continuo and Little Improvisations, and in George Balanchine’s Valse Fantaisie and Who Cares?. His role as the Devil in Agnes de Mille’s Three Virgins and a Devil won the praise from the Duluth News Tribune: “While already a powerful performer, Wourms’ characterization as a rude, arrogant, smarmy Beelzebub displayed his theatrical potency.” Nikolaus has received two Fellowship Initiative Grants from the New York Choreographic Institute, an affiliate of the New York City Ballet, to develop works for the Minnesota Ballet; one was performed in a studio presentation March 2013, the other in August 2015.
