List of Asian Ballet Schools
Posted 09 June 2003 - 06:45 AM
in the past, we have had entries from japan and, i believe, singapore. this year we hope to attract dancers from wider afield.
the organising body is the Australian Instituute of Classical Dance. the competition takes place in perth, western australia at the west australian academy of performing arts (WAAPA), which is part of edith cowan university: excellent facilities, including a new (second) theatrette.
the competition is similar to the 'genee' or 'prix de lausanne' style - a class audition, followed by two solos in differing styles, with further selection, down to semi-finals and finals - in front a panel of judges from the dance profession. the prizes (money for further training) total around about US $5000, as i recall.
this contest is held only every second year. the last time it was held, the winner was stephen macrae from sydney, who went on, the next year, to win the genee AND then, almost immediately, the prix de lausanne! whew!
given that perth is on the indian ocean rim, cities (with ballet schools) which are convenient to here, include hong kong, singapore, kuala lumpur, taipei; Japanese cities, etc.
i know there are asian ballet students posting here. could some of you post the names, postal addresses , fax numbers and/or email addresses of the best schools in your geographic areas? that would be very helpful.

do 'we' know of any suitable (ie. pre-professional) SCHOOLS (rather than companies) in china?
how about japan or thailand?
i know its not 'Asia', but south african/african schools would also be appropriate...
all help gratefully received, ASAP!

melodies - that is a wonderful list. is there any chance you could find postal addresses, or email addresses for any of these? i am afraid that if *I* phoned them to ask for such information, maybe i would only get someone who speaks mandarin!
