Hello to You All,
I was wondering if any one could helf me and give myself some information re the various ballet competitions that are held around the world.
I have accessed the various web pages of the competions , but I would like more general information
Obviously i am aware of the mosy famous ones held in Lausanne, Jacksonville, Varna etc, but can someone fill me in on the following general points.
Who is eledgiblae to enter, must a person be a member of a ballet company,
Which competion is the most prestigeious to win,
Does winning / being placed in any competion enhance your chances of being picked for a company. Do the various companies have scouts out looking for potential starts of the future to join their company.
I have read that a few of the Royal Ballet company have at as stage won the Prix de Lausanne , Bull , Yoshida , and Cojacoru, but since Errol Pickford and Viviana Durante won the Erik Brauhn competition some years back , i have not read of of any recent winners of any competitions(excuse me if i am mistaken). Are members of the company encouraged to participate in such events or is it frowned upon???.
Any information would be gratly appreciated.
Happy New Year to you all.
