How to enter:
This time we’d like you to think about your favorite choreographers. Over the years, we have featured here many different names, from 19th and 20th century geniuses, to modern masters. Without people like Petipa, Balanchine, Bournonville, Ashton and MacMillan – to name but a few – ballet would be a much poorer art form. Just as we now look up to choreographers like Ratmansky, Wheeldon, Liam Scarlett, Justin Peck, and their contemporaries to take the art form further, to continue to expand the repertory of ballet companies around the world and create new opportunities and exciting roles for dancers.
All you have to do then is tell us:
Who is your favourite ballet choreographer ever, classical or modern?
If you need inspiration, feel free to browse some of our features on:
- Geniuses: Marius Petipa, Kenneth MacMillan, Frederick Ashton, Mr B., August Bournonville
- Modern masters: Nacho Duato, Mats Ek, Maurice Béjart, William Forsythe
- Cool contemporary: Paul Lightfoot, Arthur Pita, Tim Rushton, Kenneth Tindall, Jessica Lang, Kristen McNally, Alexander Whitley
