WHAT is EUROPE BARCELONA DANCE AWARD ? International Competition for Dance Schools & Groups
The event in which you will participate is the Barcelona Dance Award 2010, a competition that has established itself as the largest and most important amateur dancing event in Europe, divided into different categories which awards the best groups, talents, choreographers and teachers. The commission of international experts, critics and representatives from the prestigious Dance Companies will judge the School and Dance Dep. participants. Such an initiative will encourage cultural growth through dance as a universal language and will especially serve to stimulate friendship, solidarity, respect and mutual understanding. Our organisation plans these theatrical events guaranteeing top service, professional management, and proven experience. It will be our responsibility to work with you from the moment you confirm your participation. The theatre program, lodging and restaurants, information on the excursions and recreational activities have all been meticulously organised and the needs which could arise will be satisfied by our staff during your stay.
Why participate? Our organisation, with offices in Italy and Spain, has worked to prepare the "Barcelona Dance Award 2010" dedicated to dance in all of its expressions, reserved for Schools of Dance, and Institutes. Everyone can participate in this event, our office in Spain has organised your stay with an attractive program so that, you can dance in the Capital of the "Millenium" European Culture and beyond performing in various theatres, you have the opportunity to visit the splendour of Barçelona, Costa Brava. Naturally, a theatrical adventure of this size will require some small challenges: it will be necessary to abandon our habits for several days, speak other languages, compete with the best schools and learn to manage our own images and preparation according to standards which are different from those at home.
