The annual competition is one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world, attracting the finest young dancers from across the globe. Those entering receive a unique opportunity to work with renowned choreographers and teachers over five days before competing for a range of medals.
Previous Genée medalists include The Royal Ballet's Lauren Cuthbertson and Steven McRae, and The Mariinsky Ballet's Xander Parish, who is currently performing with the Russian company at the Royal Opera House.
The competition is organized by the Royal Academy of Dance who this year will present The Royal Ballet with its highest honour - the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Award - at a fundraising dinner on 4 September.
