Genée International Ballet competitors visit Table Mountain
Fantastic weather, graceful poses and a nominee for the New7Wonders of Nature ... this stellar combination made for a spectacular photo opportunity for the Genée International Ballet competitors during their visit to Table Mountain on Saturday October 8.
Visitors and locals alike were delighted at the sights of the pretty ballerinas posing on top of the Mother City’s majestic attraction.
With elegant dancers from all over the world, including South Africa, the United States, Canada, Wales, Scotland, Israel, Malaysia, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Cyprus and Spain, the battle for top honours at the Genée International Ballet Competition 2011 – a prestigious contest hosted by the Royal Academy of Dance at the Artscape Theatre – was tough.
At the finale on Sunday October 9, South Africa’s dancers did their country proud by winning two Bronze Awards. Congratulations to the Western Cape's Mlindi Kulashe (19), originally from Nyanga, and Ashley Scott (17) from Hermanus – both currently training at the English National Ballet School in London – for winning medals in the male and female categories.
These are a few of the beautiful images:
