In total, 54 young choreographers (32 girls and 22 boys) from 18 different Partner Schools have submitted a variation.
This programme, sponsored by Heinz Spoerli, aims to encourage young aspiring choreographers, thanks to a positive and constructive competitive atmosphere.
“We would like to congratulate all choreographers and their beautiful dancers for their wonderful work, creativity and energy. It was incredibly heartwarming to get so much enthusiasm despite the technical difficulties (rehearsals, filming, coaching, etc.) they must have faced within this pandemic context. It is very encouraging for the years to come and we hope the future editions of the Young Creation Award will keep gathering such inspiration and talent.”
