The Royal Academy of Dance has recently launched the Genée 2013 app, specifically designed to give users exclusive access to the excitement and atmosphere of the Genée International Ballet Competition – the flagship event of the Royal Academy of Dance since 1931.

As well as artistic director Lynn Wallis’s exclusive filmed diary of Genée 2013, you'll find dancers in action and a wealth of photos and background information. The app has been produced by Dance Gazette, the magazine of the Royal Academy of Dance.

The Genee app is a glorious feast of dance news about one of the premier dance competitions in the world, taking you day by day through the 2013 event. It gives you access to everything you need to know about the RAD, including classes, membership and undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Proven to be a launch pad for a professional career in dance, 14 Genée medallists since the 2000 competition have gone on to dance with The Royal Ballet alone – amongst them, current Principal Dancers Lauren Cuthbertson (Silver Medallist, 2001) and Steven McRae (Gold Medallist, 2002).
The app is free to download and available on iPhone, Android and tablets. Find out more about it here.
