History

HISTORY

Asian Grand Prix International Ballet Competition (AGP) was founded in 2011 as an annual platform for international dancers to learn from and be recognized by a panel of international ballet experts. Classical and contemporary ballet classes were introduced in 2017 throughout the week of the competition to encourage candidates to focus on the learning experience rather than paying attention entirely to competing.

 

In 2018, AGP reached out to multiple Asia Pacific cities, introducing regional competitions for the first time. AGP regionals were hosted in 12 cities in 2019, allowing over a thousand dancers to enjoy AGP classes and performing experience. Over the years, 4 Grand Prix, 10 Youth Grand Prix cash awards and over a hundred scholarships of renounced international ballet schools have been offered to talented dancers to pursue their dance education and professional career.

 

AGP Ballet Intensive Program (BIP) was added in 2012 as an additional week of dance training alongside the competition week. Students participate in classical ballet, repertoire, contemporary ballet, character dance, body conditioning classes, and present a performance at the end of the week. Over two hundred BIP scholarships have been awarded to dancers demonstrating exceptional talent and potential in ballet.

MISSION

Asian Grand Prix International Ballet Competition (AGP) is an educational journey for young ballet dancers, primarily in Asia-Pacific region, to demonstrate their talent and learn from international dance experts. Outstanding dancers are recognized by awards and scholarships to assist them with their dance training and career development.
