Genée 2017

Genée 2017
The Genée International Ballet Competition 2017 was held in Lisbon, Portugal from 7–16 September.

Find out who were the Genée 2017 medallists.


Portugal’s beautiful coastal capital is Europe's second-oldest capital after Athens. As the former home of Vasco da Gama, Ferdinand Magellan and Prince Henry the Navigator, its influence and stature as a world city is undeniable. With its mixture of history, tradition, and vibrant contemporary culture, we were hugely excited about Lisbon playing host to the competition for the very first time.
