Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition (VKIBC), formerly known as BIBC, is an initiative of the Dance Conservatory Performance Project, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit dance organization.
Boston International Ballet Competition, NOW VALENTINA KOZLOVA INTERNATIONAL BALLET COMPETITION, was started in 2011 by Valentina Kozlova to allow student and professional dancers ages 13 to 25 years old an opportunity to perform and compete in a positive and encouraging atmosphere before a distinguished panel of international judges. VKIBC is proud to award professional contracts, scholarships, monetary and other special prizes to competitors.
The competition was started in order to bring magic into ballet, "open doors" and unite the far reaches of the dance world with an innovative competition for talented students and young professionals. VKIBC is an initiative of the Dance Conservatory Performance Project (DCPP), a not for profit dance organization created to foster classical dance and disseminate its education, both as a traditional expression and an evolving performing art form.
VKIBC is a member of Unesco's International Dance Council CID.
