Thank you, ADC IBC - Youth International Ballet Competition for an inspiring weekend. This was our first experience participating in this competition and we thoroughly enjoyed the process. It was a wonderful opportunity to receive class from Mr. Peter LeBreton Merz and technical evaluations in class and onstage from the jury, Mr. Christopher Hird , Mr.Mimmo Miccolis Choreographer, and Mr. Olivier Munoz.
Thank you for sharing your insightful and uplifting perspectives during the roundtable panel discussion. The conversation resonated with us, as we truly agree that the reward is in process, every class we take and every moment we dance is a gift.
In closing, we are grateful for the recognition Bayer Ballet received and would like to congratulate our dancers for their dedication, and our teachers and choreographers, who guide their journeys, inspire their dreams and unconditionally share their knowledge.
