The competition

The Roseta Mauri Internacional Dance Competition, held since 2002, stems from the urge to reveal the talent of young dancers and to give impulse for their artistic carreer. It is an international competition and the one with the most significant financial dowries in Spain.

Previous editions’ winners and finalists have reached their goals: dance in prestigious companies.

This competition is addressed to dancers of any nationality, between the ages of 16 and 21 years old (2008 – 2003), including those with birthdays in the year 2024 can participate.

    Henning Albrechtsen
    Member of the jury

    Henning Albrechtsen joined the Royal Danish Ballet in 1985, where he danced a variety of soloist and principal parts of classical and neo-classical repertoire – from Bournonville to Balanchine. In 1997 he started teaching at Royal Danish Ballet School. In 2000, he was appointed Deputy artistic director of RDB, a position he held until 2007. That same year he enrolled at the Teachers Training Programme for former professional dancers at National Ballet School of Canada and completed the one year educational programme and was invited back to the Royal Danish Ballet school as a full time teacher in 2008. 

    Henning Albrechtsen is considered one of his generation’s leading authorities on Bournonville style and as such, is in demand around the world as a teacher and stager of Bournonville. According to Albrechtsen, the XIX Century choreographer August Bournonville still appeals to dance professionals and audiences around the world due to its infectious expression of joyful abandon. He has taught at various schools around the world among others at the National Ballet School of Cuba, National Ballet School of Canada. Furthermore, he has taught the Bournonville style in Australia, Japan, Mexico, Sweden, Norway and Spain.
