The annual Reumert awards are Denmark's biggest performing arts prizes, and at their presentation ceremony last night, Maria Bernholdt of the RDB was announced as the Dancer of the Year for her performances in Ashton's Isadora Waltzes and as Birthe in the recent production of Bournonville's A Folk Tale. It's a wonderful recognition for someone who's been in the corps de ballet for 15 years, particularly as one of the other nominees was the hugely popular and publicised Alban Lendorf.

David Amzallag has posted some fine photos of her in these two roles - I especially like the ones from Isadora.

The Hubbe/Englund Folk Tale won the Dance Production of the Year award, and first-year corps de ballet dancer JÚn Axel Fransson won one of the ten 'talent prizes' given to younger, emerging artists from all disciplines. He's given very promising performances this year as the Jester in Swan Lake and as Bluebird.
