About En Avant Foundation
The goal of “En Avant” is to reaffirm the importance of quality, integrity, musicality and artistic meaning in classical ballet, thus achieving excitement in performance.
The utilization of former leading dancers, other artists and related professionals who epitomize excellence, will be called upon within a caring environment to provide specialized coaching in master classes and in workshops in order to achieve that goal.
A mentoring program attached to the awarding, worldwide, of scholarships to particularly prodigious young dancers who possess talent, dedication and need, will encourage the future of the art form.
"If we can work towards encouraging
artistic fearlessness in our young dancers
we might be heading in the right direction."
- Steven Heathcote, former principal dancer, Australian Ballet
