At the end of each season, the Friends of Ballett Zürich have the privilege of awarding the Dance Prize. In doing so, we express our appreciation and recognition of the overall performance of the dancers of Ballett Zürich and the Junior Ballet. Thanks to the numerous training, rehearsal and performance visits, we have an in-depth insight into the artistic and creative work of the dancers and can nominate our favourite from the main company and the Junior Ballet on this basis. The Dance Award is an audience award and the vote is cast on the basis of personally selected criteria such as charisma, stage presence and technical ability. Here you will find the regulations and the biographies of the personalities from Ballet Zurich (only available in German). The opening of the voting will be communicated to the members via newsletter.

The award ceremony for the Dance Prize 23/24 took place after the performance of The Cellist on Wednesday, 26 June 2024. The prize was awarded on the Opera House stage. The date for the award ceremony 24/25 will be announced at the beginning of the next season.

Many thanks for the generous commitment to UBS Zurich
