Molly Lake Award



Isabella Swietlicki won the prestigious Molly Lake Award for the "Best British Young Dancer of the Year" and is heading to New Zealand for the Genée International Ballet Competition. In 2014, she won a bronze medal at the Genee International Ballet Competition.


Gillian Barton, Principal of Ballet West congratulated Isabella: "This is a remarkable achievement for Isabella. She is an exceptionally talented and dedicated student and richly deserves her success."


Isabella trained as a dancer at Ballet West since she was 7-years-old. Isabella was chosen as a "poster girl" by the Royal Academy of Dance to advertise the Genée Challenge. She has danced solo roles in the Ballet West tours of The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Romeo & Juliet tours in Scotland and China in previous years.  She is now working in New Zealand with the Queensland Ballet.
