REVIEW OF PROF. VLADIMIR VASILIEV
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BALLET COMPETITION – VARNA
“For me Varna International Ballet Competition is like the first love. Notwithstanding the multitude of other existing competitions for me it is the unique and only one. First and foremost because it was the first in the world and the drawing of lots assigned to me the winning number 13 and I had the luck to get the Grand Prix. And finally, the most important thing – at this very Competition I have found friends, talented and unique, whose love has been with me throughout my life. 50 years have passed and I am happy that at this year’s jubilee we can again see those who have become pride for ballet all over the world, and that I will again have the opportunity to relive the joy of meeting with the wonderful art of dance.”
