Emma said afterwards "it was beautiful, utterly amazing! My favourite part was the pas de deux between Clara and the Nutcracker. It was also really good to see the dancers who were nominated for the Emerging Dancer Award, they were all so good and I can't wait to hopefully see them in the future!"
The dancers short-listed for the Emerging Dancer Award are : Esteban Berlanga, Anaïs Chalendard, Crystal Costa, Ksenia Ovsyanick, Junor de Oliveira Souza and Venus Villa.
If you'd like to know more about the dancers short-listed for the Emerging Dancer Awards, I have published interviewes with some of them, including Venus Villa, Crystal Costa, Anaïs Chalendard and Esteban Berlanga. I will shortly be publishing interviews with the final two nominees.
