"Young British Dancer of the Year Award (alleged)"
 
   I watched this at the Linbury last night. It's hosted by The Royal Ballet School, presented at the Royal Opera House, and five of the six jury members were from the RB or BRB. And guess what? 15 of the 16 finalists were students at the Royal Ballet School! Does anyone else see a credibility problem here?

I thought the standard was no more tha average minus. Fortunately, the evening was saved by Nao Sakuma and Chi Cao from BRB who, while the jury deliberated, gave a brilliant performance of David Bintley's "Spring".

   Jonathan --
Thank you for the information. Well, the RBS is hosting it, so I guess they wanted to promote their students. Were there any signs of talent amongst the students though? Who won the "British Dancer of the Year" award?

   Just a question --
how is this competition different from the Adeline Genee Awards in terms of its prizes, structure?
