With the eight most promising ballet students Australia can muster and top dance troupes vying for other awards, this is one of the most popular annual events in the Sydney Eisteddfod calendar.
Sponsored by The Guillermo Keys-Arenas Dance Trust and supplemented by the Sydney Eisteddfod Jubilee Fund, the total prize value exceeds $36,000, often being recognised as the most valuable awards in the Southern Hemisphere, and attracts very keen competition.
Talented dancers who have been nurtured by the prestigious Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarships have been sourced by the leading ballet companies around the world for decades. The Australian Ballet’s Leanne Stojmenov and Adam Bull and The Royal Ballet’s Steven McRae are shining examples.
While the ballet finalists delight with their grace, in complete contrast, the wild and wonderful troupes competing in Dance Group Final amaze with their seemingly impossible moves and tricks.
The Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarship & Dance Group Final will take place on Sunday 30th July at 2.30pm at the Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House.
Cost: A Reserve: Adult $69, Concession $59; B Reserve (restricted viewing): $55.
