Our mission is to create an opportunity for young dancers from different cultures and countries to share their knowledge and passion for dance. To offer a competitive, positive atmosphere,  in which artists will gain confidence, develop friendships and connections, and become the chief protagonists in the development of their own futures.

The competition aims to unite young artists from the US and abroad and inspire them to share their art form in an atmosphere of discovery and collaboration. Last year it welcomed an international following of spectators and artists that came to our city to share their diverse cultures in a unique dance experience. During the event, participants received master classes from a panel of guest teachers in Ballet and Contemporary dance. The panel also provided constructive criticism and expert advice throughout the event.
