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 positive competitive 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 a positive atmosphere of discovery and collaboration. Last year we welcomed an international following of spectators and artists who came to our city to share their diverse cultures in a unique dance experience. During the event, participants receive master classes from a distinguished panel of guest teachers in Ballet and Contemporary dance. The panel also provides constructive criticism and expert advice throughout the event to support each artist's professional development.
