About the show

The 12th edition of the Eurovision Young Dancers competition was held in the "Dansen Hus" (the House of Dance) of Oslo, Norway, on June 24th 2011.

There was a total of 10 participant countries, including 2 new contestants: Armenia and Kosovo.

Every country could send one male or female dancer, and each dancer performed 1 dance. After all the countries had performed, the jury chose the 2 finalists (in this case, Norway and Slovenia) and after new performances, the winner was chosen.

The jury consisted of:

  • Fredrik Rydman (Sweden) (29 August 1974)
  • Ilze Liepa (Russia) (22 November 1963)
  • Michael Nunn (United Kingdom) (1967)
  • William Trevitt (United Kingdom) (1969)

Michael and William founded in 2001 BalletBoyz, an acclaimed contemporary dance company based in London.

Good to know!

The host of the competition, Erik Solbakken, was host as well in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Oslo.
