Third year student George Nightingale has just returned from the Cecchetti International Classical Ballet Competition in Richmond, Virginia, USA. CICB takes place every three years and is hosted by a different member country. 39 young dancers from Australia, Canada, South Africa, the UK and the USA came to represent their countries. The UK was represented by 5 very talented students selected through the UK Vocational Awards and included our very own George. We are delighted to announce that George was selected as one of the fifteen finalists and went on to be awarded the ABT/Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School and Australia Ballet School scholarships. Congratulations George!
