The Genée offers candidates the unique opportunity to work with and learn from world-renowned dance professionals and choreographers over 5 days of intensive coaching sessions before competing in front of an international panel of distinguished judges. They also have the chance to perform on the most prestigious international stages, experiencing what the life of a professional dancer is like.
