Harlequin Floors Featured At The Fonteyn 2023

The Margot Fonteyn International Ballet Competition took place at the RAD global headquarters this year with the final at His Majesty’s Theatre in London. 

The Fonteyn is the RAD’s flagship annual event dedicated to rewarding standards of excellence in young ballet dancers internationally. The ballet competition was held last month from 21-29 October, providing an opportunity for dancers to work with world-renowned choreographers and professionals, as well as the chance to perform on an international stage.

The competitors rehearsed throughout the week in the RAD HQ studios with a Harlequin Activity sprung floor and Harlequin Cascade vinyl performance floor. The semi-finals took place in its 193-seat performance space, the Aud Jebsen Studio Theatre.

Tim Arthur, RAD Chief Executive, said: “It’s a really special year for us with The Fonteyn because it’s the first live Fonteyn we’ve had since 2019 because of the pandemic. We’re also able to host it for the first time here in London and in our own headquarters.”
