Emerging Dancer

Sadler's Wells, London
07 May

Celebrating the talent of tomorrow's stars.

Success in ballet requires a huge amount of hard work, talent and creative curiosity. Through this annual event, English National Ballet recognises the excellence of its artists.

Selected by their peers, six of our most promising dancers perform in front of an eminent panel of expert judges, before one receives the 2019 Emerging Dancer Award.

This year’s nominees are Alice Bellini, Emilia Cadorin, Julia Conway, Rentaro Nakaaki, Shale Wagman and Rhys Antoni Yeomans.

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 an Artist of the Company, will also be revealed.

Vote here for your favourite dancer to win the People’s Choice Award. Voting closes on Saturday 13 April 2019.

English National Ballet are unique in celebrating their dancers with a very public event… very prestigious and special
