Hello David,

 

I know of a few young dancers in their graduating year who would be interested in applying for Grand Audition.  I am aware that the closing date for application is January 5th 2018 and have also noted that " we reserve the rights to close the application process once the amount of accepted candidates reached it's limit" (https://www.grandaudition.net/terms-and-conditions)

 

Could you tell me if, firstly Grand Audition inform potential candidates before they pay the 45 euro registration fee whether or not the audition quota has been filled and also if the Artistic Directors of the Companies mentioned who will be present actually have contracts to offer for next season.

 

Best Wishes, Ellie

Dear Ellie,


Yes, we do inform potential candidates once there are no more places, in addition "Online Registration Form" is taken down and dancers are not able to apply. Regrading your second question, we only invite Companies who has contracts to offer, this is the main goal for Grand Audition. This project is created specifically to help dancers to find a job. 

With best wishes,
David

According to a post from Graham Watts on Facebook, Chloe Reveillon (currently POB ex RBS) had six job  offers, including one from the Mariinsky.

Some of us will have seen her dancing at the Natalia Kremen Gala last summer.

 

There doesn't seem to be any other news about contracts.
