Description

Genée International Ballet Competition 2019

Mission Statement
The Genée International Ballet Competition is dedicated to promoting and rewarding standards of excellence in young ballet dancers internationally. This is achieved by offering aspiring dancers the unique opportunity to work with world-renowned choreographers and professionals as well as the chance to perform on an international stage.

The Competition
The Genée International Ballet Competition represents the pinnacle of achievement for young people trained in the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus. The competition identifies talented young dancers and often launches them into a professional career.

The competition originated quite humbly in 1931 as the ‘Adeline Genée Gold Medal’ and was introduced as an additional incentive for candidates who had passed the Solo Seal examination. Felicity Garratt was the first recipient of this award; other medals were later added: the silver (1934), bronze (1956), and gold and silver for male dancers (1938).

The award continued to progress and develop into a competition format and remarkably it has taken place almost every year since 1931, even during the Second World War. In 2002, Luke Rittner, the RAD’s Chief Executive, took the landmark decision to hold the competition outside London in order to embrace its international spirit taking it to Australia where Sydney Opera House played host to a record number of candidates.

Since 2002, the competition has been held in cities including Singapore, Cape Town, London, Toronto and Sydney. In 2019, we are delighted that the Genée will be returning to Toronto.
