This is a very prestigious competition which, like Jackson, occurs only every four year. Budding Bolshoi star Maria Alexandrova won the senior gold last time. Not quite sure how Bolshoi dancers will be able to enter next year, as this competition will coincide with the Bolshoi Ballet's London tour. Then again, only one-third of the Bolshoi troupe came to America, so I suspect that a similar number of dancers will make their way to Covent Garden, leaving lots of colleagues back home in Moscow, able to enter this competition.
To answer an earlier question, Terry, I seriously doubt that Mr. Grigorovich would be involved in a competition sponsored by the current Bolshoi administration. Times have changed.

Besides those mentioned above, other CID/UNESCO-sponsored IBCs include those held in Helsinki & New York. Both of these were created in the 1980s, Helsinki ca 1983 & New York ca 1985. Helsinki was originally intended to take the place of the now-defunct Osaka IBC. [The original 'vision' of CID/UNESCO was to have the four sites--Varna, Moscow, Osaka-cum-Helsinki & Jackson--rotate...a different venue every four years...never happened for a variety of reasons.]
Nowadays, there is no logical pattern to when each is held. Some every four years (Moscow & Jackson), some every two years (Varna & Paris), some every three years (New York)...and some whenever the funding materializes (Helsinki). I've stopped planning beyond two years. Rather, when I see the poster or advertisement for a competition, I mark it on the calendar. No guessing!
To answer another of your questions - No, I have never attended the Paris IBC. I've attended two Moscows & one each of Jackson and Varna. My autumn is packed with 'regular work' commitments, so I won't make it this year. Besides, I had long-ago planned the trip in January to see the premiere of 'Paquita' @ POB (free Delta air ticket!) & the Moscow and Shanghai competitions in summer...travel budget for Fiscal-Year 2001 has already been allocated. Can't do it all.

Fax (_358-9) 135-5522
Components of the competition:
DANCERS - The programme will consist of both classical & modern dance. There will be both Senior & Junior categories. Juniors, age 15 - 18; Seniors, age 19-25.
CHOREOGRAPHERS - A special Choreography Competition for works created after January 1, 2000, utilizing Finnish music, will be held on the 2nd of June, 2001, in one round. The selection to the competition participants will be made from video-cassettes. *Dancers participating in the competing choreographies need not be participants of the Ballet Competition.
INT'L SYMPOSIUM ON DANCE & MEDICINE - to be held 3 - 4 JUNE, 2001, covering psychological, nutritional & medical aspects of dance.
As you see, there will be some interesting twists to this competition. Also interesting is the fact that this event will end just before the venerable Moscow IBC commences in the neighboring country of Russia...so could we expect to see some of the same dancers in both contests? - Jeannie
