ABOUT THE COMPETITION

The Ballet Competition „On Tiptoe“ has been established for the purpose of enlargement of competitive classical dance activities for young dancers. This competition will be the only one of its kind in Moravia and is designated for nonprofessional dancers from the age of 4.

The competitors from the Czech Republic as well as from abroad (Poland, Germany, Slovakia and Austria) will have an opportunity to show and to compare the level of their ballet skills. The main mission of this competition is to present results of long-term effort of children and teachers in front of the jury, parents, friends and public and evaluate their effort appropriately. Very important is also the exchange of new experiences in the dance field between students and teachers, making new contacts in the dancing field and also discovering new dance tallents by experienced experts. All competitors will be judged by jury consisting of significant personalities of the ballet world.

By organizing the first year of the competition in Brno we have established a new tradition, which opened the City of Brno for the young ballet world with due dignity.
