Emerging Dancer 2014
19 May 2014, Lyceum Theatre
Emerging Dancer Competition is an annual event for English National Ballet to recognise and nurture the phenomenal talent of its up-and-coming dancers. In this live final six emerging dancers perform in front of a panel of eminent judges. The Emerging Dancer Award winner is announced at the end of the evening together with the recipient of the People’s Choice Award, which is voted for by members of the public. The Emerging Dancer Competition is generously supported in its fifth year by Talbot Hughes McKillop, the restructuring experts.
22, 23 & 24 May, 2014, Barbican Pit
English National Ballet invites five company members to take the choreographic lead for a showcase that places emerging talent centre stage. Charged with devising new work in response to the Great War, the aspiring choreographers collaborate with five composers to develop original music that begins with a song and evolves into an accompanying score. Under the direction of Associate Artist George Williamson, the event also provides a platform from which young dancers shine, including the current winner of English National Ballet School’s Choreographic Competition. English National Ballet’s second programme marking the centenary of the First World War at the Barbican follows Lest We Forget.
