The South Island Ballet Award 2021 is sure to be an exciting event with young dancers from all over the South Island gathering to compete in this prestigious competition.

This award provides a pathway for South Island dancers to further their training towards a career as a professional dancer. Previous prize winners have gone on to secure positions with professional ballet companies throughout the world.

This event is aimed at aspiring young dancers from 11 to 19 years of age who will be judged by a panel of international and national adjudicators. Competitors in the Junior and Senior categories take part in a technical class and a preliminary round consisting of a set-variation solo and a contrasting own-choice solo.

The total prize money is intended to be used for further studies in classical dance. This supports our aim of assisting, encouraging and developing the art of dance.

Come along and support our young dancers and be entertained at the same time with some brilliant ballet and contemporary performances.
