The Genée International Ballet Competition returns to Hong Kong. Officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, this unique city where East meets West is home to a dynamic mix of cultures.

The RAD's association with Hong Kong goes back a long way. The first exams were held there at The Helena May in 1956, with 120 entries. Today, nearly 20,000 candidates enter every year.
