‘ Founded in 2001, The “Premio Roma Danza” International Dance Competition, began under the High Patronage of the President of the Republic, becoming one of the most prestigious dance competitions of international level.
Addressed to students of the National Academy of Dance (AND) and foreign competitors, it takes place in the Teatro Grande on the grounds of the National Academy of Dance.
Since 2018 a video-dance award was also established in the Ruskaja Theater. The intention is to give visibility to new talents, coming from all over the world, engaged in the field of interpretation and composition, supporting them in the search for choreographic creation, offering them opportunities for useful relationships between the world of production and that of diffusion of dance in its possible forms.
The Premio Roma Danza 2019 is honored to have the Cuomo Foundation as its official sponsor, whose mission, through international projects, consists in strengthening opportunities in education and access to culture to strengthen the individual in his ability to improve his own existence. ‘
