Ballet is a difficult form of dance to perfect – the hours of training that students put in in order to perfect their balance, coordination and strength, alongside auditions and showcases, can often be exhausting.

Europe’s largest dancewear retailer, Dance Direct, knows how hard it is to keep up this level of drive – so to give young dancers a boost it is holding a competition to find the Student Ballet Dancer of the Year.

The competition allows student dancers from universities and colleges throughout the UK to show off their ballet skills in a video. The competition will be judged by Dance Direct’s blog writer, Jessica Wilson.

Alongside the career boost that a win could offer, the successful dancer will receive £250 worth of Dance Direct vouchers to buy all the dancewear they need, plus a featured article about themselves on the Dance Direct blog.

The article will then be shared with over 86,000 Facebook fans, and more than 4,000 Twitter followers – making it very likely that the winner’s skills will be noticed by top people in the industry.  

To enter the competition, you must:

  • Send a video of yourself dancing to
  • Include your name, age, the name of the college/university where you’re studying, and the name of your dance course.
  • Video submissions can be made by either WeTransfer for a normal file or, if applicable, a link to your video on YouTube.
  • Your video can be either: an entry made purely for this competition, or a previous audition tape or dance show performance that you’re particularly proud of!
The deadline for entries is midday on 30th June, and entrants must be registered on a certified dance course at a college or university.
