BalletCNJ Competition Results 2021!

Updated: Jun 9, 2021

BalletCNJ dancers dedicated countless hours to prepare for International Ballet Competitions in 2021. Despite these challenging times, our dancers perservered and inspired all of those who watched their beautiful performances. The students competed virtually in the prestigious Miami International Ballet Competition and the Youth America Grand Prix Semi-Finals in Boston, MA. They shared the stage with talented dancers from around the country and world and danced for 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!
