ABOUT THE COMPETITION
The Ballet Competition „Na špičkách“ has been established for the purpose of enlargement of competitive classical dance activities for young dancers. This competition is the only one of its kind in Moravia and is designated for nonprofessional dancers from the age of 4.
The participants 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 this 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 participants will be judged by a jury consisting of significant personalities of the ballet world.
