What is Universal Ballet Competition?
Universal Ballet Competition (UBC) is a premier student ballet competition, which has expanded into five major metropolitan cities in the US due to its growing popularity among dancers, studio directors, and the ballet community. Founding members, Lissette Salgado and David Lucas, former principal ballet dancers at the Royal Winnipeg, have illustrious careers. Their combined list of professional contacts allows them the privilege to recruit globally renowned dancers, company directors, and ballet school directors to judge, mentor, and teach the master classes during each UBC competition. Since its first season, UBC has hosted and mentored more than 10,000 dancers and awarded over 3 million dollars in scholarships.
