OWPD PRIX

TALENT IS REWARDED

OWPD PRIX
ON STAGE WITH A PRINCIPAL
At Ibstage we love to maximize the talent in each student and for this reason, we have created a special program called, “Onstage With a Principal Dancer” (OWPD).
This program was designed to give very talented students the opportunity to dance onstage with a principal dancer from a renowned company during our IBStage Galas.
OWPD also gives the selected students the possibility to be seen by an artistic director and invited to join their company.
