Since its creation in 2002, the Burgos & New York International Choreography Competition has been a platform for the projection of dance and the new languages of movement. It is also a space for creative encounters and dialogue where plural perspectives converge. Each year, it welcomes choreographers from around the world and develops a broad program of community activities that bring creation closer to the territory and audiences.
Organized by CIDANZ Producciones - Ballet Contemporáneo de Burgos in collaboration with the Instituto Municipal de Cultura y Turismo del Ayuntamiento de Burgos, the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Junta de Castilla y León and under the direction of choreographer Alberto Estébanez, the Certamen Burgos & New York promotes the art of choreography and the creative values that inspire dance in the 21st century. This event, which brings together a prestigious jury every year, makes Burgos a special showcase for the latest choreographic proposals and trends.
