Emerging Dancer 2020

Southbank Centre, London
22 Sep

Celebrating the talent of tomorrow's stars.

Following government advice about Coronavirus COVID-19, Emerging Dancer 2020 has been postponed from 29 May to 22 September.  The Southbank Centre Ticket Office will be contacting ticket buyers in due course. We thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this period of uncertainty.  Our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone who is being affected by this situation and we hope to see you again soon.

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

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 for your favourite dancer to win the People’s Choice Award. Voting closes on 8 April 2020. Finalists for this year’s Emerging Dancer have yet to be announced.

Now in its 11th year, Emerging Dancer provides a great opportunity for talent and skill development for the performers and mentors.

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