The Genée International Ballet Competition

Known simply as ‘the Genée’, it is one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world, attracting the finest young dancers trained in the Royal Academy of Dance’s syllabus, from around the globe.

Candidates receive a unique opportunity to work with renowned choreographers and teachers for five days before performing at the semi-finals, and then the final, where they compete for a range of medals.

In 2015, the competition will be held in London, home of the RAD and where the first Genée was held in 1931. Candidates will experience world-class coaching at the RAD headquarters by the Thames in Battersea, including sessions in the Genée Studio, and be judged by representatives from internationally renowned ballet companies.

The Final will take place on Saturday 19 September at the prestigious Sadler’s Wells theatre in Islington.
