The TBDA nominees for 2013 have been announced! Congratulations to Benedicte Bemet, Cameron Hunter, Natasha Kusen, Chris Rodgers-Wilson, Sharni Spencer and Valerie Tereshchenko. The nominees are chosen by our artistic staff, our principal artists, and past winners of the award, on the basis of their performances in 2012, their development as artists, and their support of fellow company members. However, there’s also a prize that depends on – you! It’s the People’s Choice Award (much coveted by the dancers) and it’s won by public vote. Do you have a favourite in this bunch? Put them in the running by texting the first name of your preferred nominee, along with your full name and postcode, to 0439 BALLET (0439 225 538). You can also vote online. Your vote will put you in the running for a fantastic ballet prize including tickets to Cinderella!
