BalletCNJ Competition Results 2020!

Updated: Nov 11, 2020

BalletCNJ dancers dedicated countless hours to prepare for International Ballet Competitions in 2020. The students traveled to Miami, Florida to compete in the prestigious Miami International Ballet Competition and the Youth America Grand Prix Semi-Finals in both NYC and Boston, and participated Virtually in the YAGP Finals and the MiamiIBC Virtual Open. They shared the stage with talented dancers from around the world: South America, China, Japan, Poland, United States, to name a few and danced in front of a panel of renown judges from top ballet companies and schools.

All BalletCNJ dancers had amazing performances and showed that BalletCNJ is a true training ground for artistry and passion!

Congratulations to all of our dancers who were selected to compete and thank you to all of the parents and families for your support and trust in us!
