The International Ballet and Contemporary Dance Competition, Domenico Modugno, in Lecce, Italy is the first and the only event of this kind in the area. The 2018 Edition will be held in the beautiful baroque style city of Lecce at one of the most beautiful and culturally significant centers of Southern Italy, it aim is to promote, stimulate, and encourage young talents in the discipline of dance and choreography. The main purpose of the event is to create opportunities for the young dancers to “network”, to see and to be seen by their peers, teachers, schools’ and companies’ directors, and of course, the audiences. Connections made under such circumstances inevitably result in generous and even career altering offers of scholarships and jobs.
Assessment of dancers cannot be complete without seeing them both on stage and in the studio. Thus, the Competition is designed to be a two-fold event comprising of a workshop and adjudicated stage performances. We are proud to have some of the most distinguished and influential individuals in the business of dance and dance education to serve as teachers and judges at our workshop and competition:
