Emerging Dancer

Sadler's Wells, London
30 May

Celebrating the talent of tomorrow's stars.

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 2023 Emerging Dancer Award.

In 2023, Emerging Dancer will return to a live audience as the finalists perform at Sadler’s Wells.

During this special event, 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.

Emerging Dancer provides a great opportunity for talent and skill development for the performers and their mentors.

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

Tickets for Emerging Dancer 2023 will go on sale later this year.
