The Eighth Edition of the Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition and Contemporary Dance & Choreography Competition Finals has concluded. VKIBC is dedicated to creating a positive and encouraging atmosphere, allowing dancers the opportunity to further develop their technique, artistry and understanding of the art. This competition is for the dancers - let us celebrate your talents and passion, and look towards your bright future. And with this, we all must remember: a dancer's life is not about competition, but about giving!
Suite en Blanc, choreographed by Serge Lifar, was part of the Senior category Compulsory Repertoire for VKIBC 2018. Under the artistic authority of Charles Jude, former Etoile of the Paris Opera, the Lifar Foundation has very generously OFFERED a $12,000 GRAND PRIX reward to dancer CLAIRE TEYSSEIRE, of France, for performing the solo in an exceptional manner.
