Boston International Ballet Competition

The Boston International Ballet Competition completed its second edition last week with stunning performances and a surprise award. In case you missed it, here are the highlights:

 

The Boston International Ballet Competition is back for a second round. Founder Valentina Kozlova just announced the event will be held from June 12 to 17 this year. The former Bolshoi and New York City Ballet principal describes BIBC as less of a competition than a "celebration of young talent." That might sound like overly-idealized marketing speak. But look at the results: A whopping 38 medals and prizes were awarded to the almost 100 dancers who attended last year's innaugural event.

 

Dates: June 12–17

Location: Boston's Cutler Majestic Theater
