WORLD BALLET COMPETITION
6 Days. 25 Countries. You be the Judge.
The World Ballet Competition (WBC) was founded in 2007 by Central Florida Ballet’s Executive Director, Vasile Petrutiu.
Since its inception, the World Ballet Competition has grown exponentially in size because of its unique elements: an instantaneous scoring system that promotes transparency and eliminates favoritism, and an internet broadcast watched by hundreds of thousands of viewers providing global visibility.
Dancers are also drawn to compete based on the success of past WBC winners who are now enjoying professional careers at the top of their field including: Jeffrey Cirio (USA) of American Ballet Theatre; Whitney Jensen (USA) of Norwegian National Ballet; Sasha de Sola (USA) of San Francisco Ballet; Natalia Domracheva (Ukraine) Kiev Ballet; and Isaac Hernandez (Mexico) of English National Ballet, to name a few.
The WBC’s popularity has translated to generating 10 million video views through the internet as well as numerous features in magazines, television and radio shows internationally.
