The Fonteyn 2021

The Royal Academy of Dance reimagined The Fonteyn to ensure that in 2021 offered candidates a rich and inspiring experience.

We are delighted that we were able to proceed with the competition this year and believe that the changes we made created a more accessible event. These  allowed more dancers, from every part of our world, to benefit from the expert coaching and performance opportunities that the Fonteyn experience brings.
