The Ron Hitchins Prize for Flamenco Dance 2019
Every two years the Peña Flamenca de Londres awards a prize to a young flamenco dancer judged to have shown the most promise, whether they are a member of the Peña or not. The prize is a bursary of £300 to be used to support further tuition in this country or in Spain. It is awarded to the candidate aged 12 to 30 years of age who performs best at the Peña’s Juerga show in November. Candidates must be nominated by their UK-based flamenco dance teacher and may perform solo or dance as part of a group at the Juerga. The winner will be invited to attend a presentation at the Peña show in December.
The winner will be expected to report back to the Peña Flamenca de Londres after they have used the bursary to say what they learned from the experience. The report should be supported by photographs and submitted to the Peña.
