Celebrating the talent of tomorrow's stars. 

Selected by their peers, six of our most promising dancers perform in front of an eminent panel of expert judges, before one receives the 2017 Emerging Dancer Award. This inspiring evening is a fantastic opportunity to watch our 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 a member of the Corps de Ballet, will also be revealed.

Cast your vote for this year's People Choice Award here.  Voting closes on Sunday 2 April 2017.

Last year's Emerging Dancer winner, Cesar Corrales , was since promoted to First Soloist and danced the role of Hilarion in Akram Khan's Giselle this season. He is also set to perform in the role of Albrecht in Mary Skeaping's classical version of  Giselle in January 2017.
