B.C.C. Festival (Balkan Classic Contemporary Festival), is organized for the first time in Thessaloniki and aspires to become an institution in the cultural life not only of Thessaloniki and the Region of Central Macedonia in Greece but of all the Balkans.
To B.C.C. Festival is addressed to all dancers, of all ages, from all over the Balkans.
It will take place on June 11 and 12, 2022, at the theater
Monastery of Lazarists of Thessaloniki.
World-renowned dancers and choreographers are invited to rate and grade participants. Dancers who receive top scores earn scholarships to continue their studies at the schools where they attend.
Each dancer or dance group will compete and score, they are not competitive with the others but according to the score they will collect. This avoids competition, which is not in line with the spirit of creation and culture, as expressed through classical dance.
In the B.C.C. Festival will be a series of seminars which will be addressed to all dancers, amateurs and professionals, and will be held in the days before and after the festival.
Those dancers or dance groups are scored from 90% and above, who were awarded a gold medal. The highest score of the Gold Medals will be given the scholarship from the organization BCC Festival 2022 as part of the tuition, in the form of voucher, in the school with which he participated.
In the event that the student is expelled or suspended from the school with which he / she participated in the B.C.C. Fest 2022, the scholarship will go to the next in the ranking. Our goal is to reward both talented dancers and their trainers. In case of a tie, the gold medal will be awarded to all winners, but a final round will follow, where the judges will decide who should be awarded the category scholarship. In any other case the scholarship is reaped by the dancer or dance group with the highest score.
In case a dancer or dance group, over 18 years old, participates independently, without representing any school, then the corresponding amount of voucher will be given to the individual or group, by deposit in a bank account.
Additionally to the scholarships to be awarded by the B.C.C. Festival, the following scholarships will also be awarded by the judges.
