The upcoming Great Indian Ballet Competition (GIBC) finale at KC College in Churchgate, has plenty in store for aficionados of the classical dance form. This season, witness participants from across the country share one stage to showcase the growth and evolution of ballet in India.


“GIBC aims to break the barrier and provide a stage for Indian ballerinas. And through this, the Indian ballet community can hope to come together to fund prizes for our GIBC winners. We are blessed that this season, some of the best ballet schools in the world have come to India to offer scholarships; like, Canada’s National Ballet School and the National Ballet Academy from New York,” shares Apeksha Bhattacharyya, director, GIBC.

With an aim to showcase the talent and hard work of Indian ballet performers, the finale will be judged by a prestigious jury: Iain Row (National Ballet School of Canada), Josef Brown (The Australian Ballet), and Cornell Calendar (National Ballet Academy of New York).  The audience will be able to watch participants, aged between five and 26, exhibit different techniques.

“Our dancers deserve every opportunity, just as a ballerina from the USA or Europe would. Hence, my goal for this year is to encourage and realise the dreams of these beautiful ballet dancers,” she signs off.
