Celebrating its tenth year, English National Ballet’s Emerging Dancer competition will be held at Sadler’s Wells on Tuesday 7 May 2019.

Selected by their peers, six of the company's most promising dancers perform in front of an eminent panel of expert judges before one receives the 2019 Emerging Dancer Award.

The recipients of the People's Choice Award, selected by members of the public, and the Corps de Ballet Award, acknowledging the work on and off-stage of a member of the Corps de Ballet, will also be revealed.

Last year’s Emerging Dancer Award winner, Daniel McCormick, has since performed the role of Nutcracker in the Christmas favourite, the Pas de Trois and Spanish dance in Swan Lake and Lescaut in Manon.
