Cecchetti Classical Ballet Awards 2018

18 April 2019

The Cecchetti Classical Ballet Awards 2018 took place on 1st and 2nd December 2018 at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells

Participants and audience members travelled from all over the UK to be part of this event. Organising the Awards takes a huge team effort and the generous voluntary help of so many colleagues, led by Cecchetti Group members and their Chair, Elizabeth James and Awards Organiser, Lisa Hunter, is invaluable.

Mabel Ryan Awards

The esteemed adjudicators for the Mabel Ryan Awards were Alexandra Howarth, Mikah Smillie, Mary Stassinopoulos and David Yow. Sarah Bradshaw and Anna Zammit Lupi presented the children on stage, and the accompanists were Olga Mazour and Maria Milanova.  Each young dancer was able to show their best work and the many deserving winners in each section were published online: www.cecchetti.co.uk/mabel-ryan-awards
