About Yamaguchi international dance competition holding

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the 1st Yamaguchi International Dance Competition in 2021 for the entry of more than 200 people from the difficult Nakata area due to the corona.

It is still unpredictable what will happen to the coronavirus, but as in the previous year, we will do our best to do what we can.


We would like to continue to revitalize Yamaguchi Prefecture and help the development of art and culture, albeit with little effort.

About a 2019 contest

I investigate it than ballet information portal site

83 local contests

52 national target contests

Eight international target contests

Area of the inner international contest

One Fukuoka, Saitama one, Hiroshima one, Tokyo two, Kanagawa two, Okinawa one


A ballet contest is held in so each places of the whole country, but technique improvement and the human resources who it is, and are used in the world can bring by holding an international contest from the reality that there are few international contests with the scholarship (right of the studying abroad) where there is the international experience. I can list it in a resume when I gain the results in the international contest.


I think that necessary for the field of art development, upbringing education, local construction, economic development, this contest with much possibility.
