Congratulation Bronte for being accepted into Hamburg Ballet 2021!


We are thrilled to announce that as a result of Bronte Barnett’s successful performances in the Prix de Lausanne (Switzerland) , where she was coached and accompanied by Artistic Director Xanthe Geeves, Bronte was approached by a number of prestigious European Company Schools. After much consideration, Bronte and her parents have decided to accept the exceptional offer put forward by the Director of the Hamburg Company and School of Hamburg Ballett, John Neumeier, of a full scholarship (and Stipend), which is an exceedingly rare offer. This is a dream come true for Bronte who has been dancing at our school since she was four years old. Bronte has been a student of our pre-professional program at Sydney College of Dance since 2017. She is thrilled to have this amazing opportunity to be able to work with one of the world’s premier and legendary choreographers, John Neumeier ! We are incredibly proud of Bronte’s achievement and of the dedication and passion she has demonstrated in order to realise her goals.
