As every year, the Szczecin-based Ballet Foundation, which has been operating in Poland for 27 years now to support artistically talented children and youth, organized the GOLDEN POINTE SHOES 11th International Ballet Competition and the 17th International Gala of Ballet Stars. We had both the opportunity and the great pleasure of supporting the organization of this event.
The event took place on 18-19 April 2018 in the Polish theatre – Concert Hall in Szczecin. Since 2002, this competition is of a national scale, and it became international in 2008. It is the only international competition for the best graduates of ballet schools in Poland. It has already become fixed in the calendar of events of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as obligatory in artistic schools. Participants are entered into the competition by directors and teaching staff of schools according to the rules of the competition, and present themselves in classical and modern choreographies. Dancers are evaluated by an international jury including recognized ballet masters, dancers and choreographers. The GOLDEN POINTE SHOES competition boosts the development of ballet art.
The support we offered was allocated for scholarships for young students who are honing their skills in ballet schools.
