27TH INTERNATIONAL BALLET COMPETITION VARNA 2016

Varna

The Varna Ballet Competition has the privilege of being of the highest of prestige and popularity in the world. In the course of 50 years, its 25 editions have recorded the biggest number of competitors, drawing over 2,500 dancers from 40 countries.

This year the RWB is proud to be supporting two of our apprentice dancers in their quest to bring home the gold once again. Saeka Shirai and Yue Shi are both apprentice dancers with the RWB Company, and they will be accompanied on this venture by Ballet Master Jaime Vargas. We are also pleased to announce that our Artistic Director, André Lewis will be going to Varna as an International Jury member, representing Canada.

Evelyn Hart was a Principal Dancer with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and a graduate of the RWB Professional Division Ballet Academic Program. She graduated from the Ballet Academic Program in 1976, was promoted to soloist in 1978, and to Principal Dancer in 1979. Evelyn was the first Canadian to win gold at the Varna International Ballet Competition in 1980 for the pas de deux Belong choreographed by Norbert Vesak.
