Emerging Dancer

This event has been cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Poised at the brink of stardom, dancers from the English National Ballet compete for the 2020 Emerging Dancer award.

Success in ballet requires talent and a huge amount of hard work, commitment and creative curiosity.

Through this annual event, English National Ballet recognises the excellence of its artists.

Selected by their colleagues, six of the most promising dancers receive individual coaching and mentoring from their peers, before performing in front of an eminent panel of expert judges.

One will receive the 2020 Emerging Dancer Award.

This inspiring evening, the 11th year of the award, is an opportunity to watch rising stars flourish, and witness how far their dedication has taken them.

The recipient of the People’s Choice Award, selected by members of the public, and the Corps de Ballet Award, acknowledging the work on and off-stage of an Artist of the Company, are also revealed.

This year’s finalists are Ivana Bueno, Carolyne Galvao, Miguel Angel Maidana, Victor Prigent, Emily Suzuki and William Yamada.
