Choreographic success for Connor Scott
6th August 2018
Third year student Connor Scott has won three awards at the 2018 Ballett Gesellschaft International Competition for Choreographers in Hanover. His hilarious and innovative piece ‘What Goes Up’, performed with second year student Joey Barton, took home the Audience Award, the Delattre Dance Company Award and the Bundesjugendballett Production Award. We’d like to congratulate them both on this impressive achievement!
Connor was selected as the named recipient of Wingate Fellowship providing a bursary of £5,000 to Connor in his final year at the School. The aim of the Rambert School Student Sponsorship Programme is to provide support to our most talented students in order to help them reach their full potential. With support from the Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation Connor has been able to pursue auditions and other opportunities which will aid his career following graduation. The Wingate Fellowship has meant that Connor could focus solely on his studies and dance career opportunities without him having to seek work to support his day to day living expenses.
Upon graduating Connor will join Humanhood Company for their first ensemble work. Humanhood is an award-winning new dance company founded by Rudi Cole and Júlia Robert Parés. With their work – inspired by physics, human consciousness and Eastern philosophies – they aim to create an immersive and unique experience for the audience.
‘I am extremely grateful to the Harold Wingate Foundation for their support during my final year of training at Rambert School. This support has allowed me to pursue auditions and workshops which have aided my career as a new artist in the industry. Thank you for your generosity.’ Connor Scott
‘We are extremely grateful to the Harold Higham Wingate Foundation for their generous support – this Fellowship has made an enormous difference to Connor in his third year, enabling him to make the most of his training – preparing him for what is already turning out to be a brilliant future.’ Amanda Britton, Principal & Artistic Director, Rambert School
