My daughter Julia enjoyed competing in the World Arts Ballet Competition- Grand Prix 2014-2015. I found the competition well run and organized. Even though the level of the competitors was strong the environment was friendly and positive. The competition staff and judges did a great job creating an atmosphere in which each competitor could feel valued and at ease. Julia was awarded a summer scholarship from the Rosella Hightower School in Cannes, France, which she attended in June 2015. Both the ballet and contemporary dance training at Rosella Hightower was outstanding!
I had great fun competing at The World Art Ballet Competition – Grand Prix 2014-2015. I enjoyed meeting the other dancers who were all very nice. Of all the competitions I have been in I felt the feedback after finals from the judges was the most helpful I have ever received. It was an honor to dance in the Gala with stars from ABT, NYCB and Eifman Ballet. The best part of the competition for me was winning the summer scholarship to the Rosella Hightower School in Cannes, France. All the teachers were amazing at Rosella Hightower! I feel I improved my ballet technique and had great exposure to contemporary and jazz dance. It was one of the best summer intensives I ever attended and hope to go back next summer.
Abbey enjoyed her experience at World Ballet Art Competition – Grand Prix 2014-2015. Participating in the ‘Dance Planet – Gala’ at the end was such a highlight. For aspiring dancers it is extremely motivating and inspiring to be in the company of some of the best professional dancers of today. Participating at the WBAC helped build Abbey’s confidence as a dancer and solidify her desire to try to pursue ballet as a profession.
Anna won 1st Place Contemporary and 2nd Place Classical at the WBAC Grand Prix International Ballet Competition advancing to finals! We are so happy for Anna who deserves this for all her hard work in classes!!Thank you.
