South Island Ballet Award 2020

The Christchurch Ballet Society is proud to present the South Island Ballet Award at the Isaac Theatre Royal, 
Christchurch, 3rd July to 5th July 2020. This major event will once again be the highlight of the South 
Island competition dance calendar. 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 (in excess of $12,000) is intended to be used towards further studies in classical dance. 
This supports our aim of assisting, encouraging and developing the art of dance.
