Pre-Professional Student Earns Honor AwardsMay 12, 2015
Congratulations to Pre-Professional Academy student Marin, who earned many awards from her performances at the Surrey Festival of Dance 2015.
Marin received the following awards:
- Most Promising Ballet Dancer Award
- Surrey Festival of Dance Scholarship
- JoyTV10 Scholarship
- Roman Rykine’s Ballet Master Class Scholarship and
- A scholarship invitation to the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School’s Summer Intensive
The SFD ballet adjudicator this year was Roman Rykine who trained at the Rudolph Nureyev State Ballet Academy, and was a Principal dancer with English National Ballet, San Francisco Ballet and Boston Ballet. https://rwb.org/who-we-are/people/roman-rykine
Having ballet adjudicators who are former professional ballet dancers from notable companies, as well as the independent financial scholarships and direct invitations to ballet company schools, are the main reasons that we choose to present in ballet at the Surrey Festival of Dance.
We are very proud of Marin on her admirable accomplishment of earning such commendable awards!
