Honorary Diploma of Dance - Ako Kondo
The Australian Ballet School’s Honorary Diploma of Dance recognises the achievements of outstanding professionals who have trained at The Australian Ballet School but were either not able to complete the course/qualification or entered the course part way through. Previous recipients for this award were outstanding students during their training at The Australian Ballet School. They have had, or continue to have, significant careers in such areas of the industry as dance, artistic direction, teaching or choreography. Because these artists were of the standard to graduate but were unable to attain the qualification, this Honorary Diploma of Dance is criteria based and recognises the contribution made by them to ballet in Australia or overseas.
