Young dancers competition
The Denver Ballet Guild's 37th Annual Young Dancers Competition on March 6, 7, and 8, 2020, was a huge success for all involved! This competition is one of the longest running classical ballet performance competitions for young dancers in the country and we award over $25,000.00 to talented young dancers.
The goals of the competition are to recognize excellence in Colorado dancers and provide an opportunity for further enrichment of their art. A nationally recognized Master Teacher will conduct all classes. A panel of highly respected judges from the international dance community will observe and score students as they work through their master class and variations and will select finalists from Categories II, III, IV, and V for award consideration.
