Promote, stimulate, 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.
