8 IBStage Barcelona- Banco Sabadell Foundation scholarships in search of talent

From 8th to 28th August, IBStage will be holding the International Programme of dance that is held every year in Barcelona, in which over 30 highly prestigious international teachers, 14 ballet dancers from some of the best ballet companies in the world and over 120 extremely talented students who want to become professionally involved in classical dance come together.

In the eighth edition of the programme, the Banco Sabadell Foundation is granting 8 scholarships to young talented ballerinas with limited financial resources to take part in this programme. The course will take place in the Institut del Teatre and will end with two IBStage Galas in the Gran Teatro del Liceu de Barcelona, where promising ballet dancers will have a chance to share the stage with leading professionals in the field. During the three weeks of the course, high-level ballet classes will be held, together with pointe work, variations, contemporary dance, bodywork techniques and pilates. IBStage has become one of the most renowned Summer programmes in the world.
