ADC IBC Opens Up Gala Selection Process to New Choreographers.

In collaboration with the Orlando Ballet, Arcadian Broad's work titled "Spring" was a selection showcased in 2018.

ADC IBC is a Youth International Ballet Competition that focuses its core attention on connecting & enriching talented pre-professional ballet dancers with advanced training and professional opportunities. Attached to the event on the final day of festivities, ADC IBC implemented the 'Awards Gala of Stars' several years ago, which highlights the current year top stand outs, along with full professional ballet troupes, international guest principals, alumni making moves, and other up-and coming talent in the dance industry.

Starting in 2019, ADC IBC will be opening up this creative process and accepting submissions from choreographers who would like to be considered to showcase their work through the event. The ADC committee will continue to hand select talent along with this new application process for contemporary & neo-classical works.

2. For emerging choreographers:

  • That propose dancers who reside outside of the State of Florida, group must not exceed 4 dancers. Airfare to St. Pete provided by ADC IBC.
