This promises to be a treat for ballet lovers who enjoy watching young dancers at the start of their professional careers. For eleven years, English National Ballet has recognised the excellence and dedication of its artists through the Emerging Dancer competition, where six young dancers are selected by their peers to perform in front of a panel of judges and a live audience, before one of them receives the Emerging Dancer prize.

This season’s opening event is a special live stream starring winners of the competition and its People’s Choice Award, beamed live from London to ballet fans across the globe.

Enjoy an exciting programme of classical ballet and new creations online, and watch these talented dancers light up the stage. Their technical prowess and thoughtful artistry promise to shine through the screen and move ballet lovers the world over.

    English National Ballet-Emerging Dancers certainly was a treat spoiled by the raucous behaviour of the audience who, I
    presume were students of ENB. I did not appreciate their shouting, whistling and screaming.
