Jerome Anthony Barnes was born in Reading, England and trained at The Royal Ballet School. He joined Scottish Ballet in July 2017, and was promoted to Principal in December 2021.

‘Barnes performs incredible pirouettes as the Nutcracker Prince—his turbo-charged solo, performed in front of Brotherston’s wall of Christmas baubles, is nothing short of breathtaking. ’
