Welcome to 2018 K-Ballet World!
The K-Ballet World is celebrating its 11th year along the Korea Ballet Association's slogan "World Ballet to Korea, Korean Ballet to the World!". I hope the 2018 K-Ballet World could make the audience feel that the culture of ballet or dance is every corner of your life
Although its relatively short history started with the first ballet performance in 1946, many talented Korean ballet dancers are performing in worldwide well-known prestigious ballet companies all around the world. We are very proud that the K-Ballet World has contributed to the progression of Korean ballet and KBA will be continuing to introduce Korean ballet to the world and vice versa.
Especially, we proudly present the World Ballet Stars Gala performed by prestigious stars
such as Nina Kaptsova, Alexander Volchkov, Timur Askerov, Kristina Shapran, the Korea
National Ballet, the Universal Ballet, etc. There is another big event in the 2018 K-Ballet
World planned to introduce ballet history to the audience. It is a lecture performance titled
Performances of the Evening of Prominent Choreographers and Rising Choreographers
are very important and meaningful events for us as well to promote the creation of new
repertories. For the K-Ballet Forum, we are going to discuss the agenda
I sincerely express my gratitude to the Ministry of Culture Sports and Tourism, Seoul Metropolitan City, and Arts Council Korea for their subsidies. I also would like to express my great appreciation to K-Ballet World Committee members, KBA board members, and KBA sponsors for organizing this enormous event. We could not make it without your perspiration and dedication. Lastly, I hope you all could enjoy the world of 2018 K-Ballet.
