Some 128 dancers, representing 25 countries, are taking part in the initial round. The largest delegation, by far, is from Japan, with some 33 dancers entered; Australia and Korea are 2nd & 3rd, respectively, in number of entries. There are nine contestants from Russia (all female) and five from the USA.
Some 60 'quarter-finalists' will be named tomorrow, out of the initial group. This is determined by their achievements in classical & contemporary classes that are going on today & tomorrow.
The field will be pared down to 25-28 'semifinalists' on Friday, after private performances of classical & contemporary variations before the panel of judges.
Only the final two rounds are open to the public (and are being broadcasted/webcasted). The semifinals on Feb. 1 will further whittle the field to 12-14 finalists, who will go on to dance for the top prizes on Sunday, Feb. 2.
