Dear Applicants!
Since The George Balanchine Trust is now working at regulation of legitimate use of the choreographer’s legacy, we are strongly recommended to allow performing George Balanchine’s choreography at the Competition only if the competitor has a permission of the Trust.
Our attempt to find a compromise concerning our Competition has not been a success. That is why we sent a letter to all the applicants having in their programme pieces choreographed by Balanchine, asking them to replace these pieces by any other pieces.
At the same time, we know that participants have the right to change their programmes before the beginning of the Competition, and we earnestly ask you not to insert pieces by Balanchine into your programme if you have no special permission of the Trust to perform them.
Thank you for your understanding.
