The competition is open to students of dance conservatories and professional ballet schools from all over Europe from 12 years of age up to graduation.
The aim of the competition is to become a platform for discovering, supporting and promoting the artistic potential of each participant far beyond the competition itself. With an equal opportunity for talent and diligence to be recognised, all contestants can gain valuable experience, contacts and friendships, as well as an engagement with the NdB2 company, in addition to competition prizes.
Participants compete in front of an international jury.
