Varna International Ballet Competition

The Varna International Ballet Competition is a biennial ballet competition held in Varna, Bulgaria.[1] The competition was founded in 1964 and subsequently held in 1965 and 1966, and then every two years starting in 1968.[1] Many dancers have gained their first international recognition at the competition.[2]

Since the contest is a fierce one lasting half a month, the Varna International Ballet Competition has been called the "olympics of dance".[3]
