Summer seaside fun goes hand in hand with high culture in Pesaro, Le Marche’s second-largest city. It’s not an immediately attractive place, but look beyond the concrete high-rise hotels and crowds of bronzed holidaymakers jostling for beach space in August and you'll find a lot to like. Its setting is perfect, with beaches of fine golden sand fringing the Adriatic and a backdrop of undulating hills, and it has a handsome historic centre of Liberty-style villas and Renaissance palazzi.

General Rules

International choreographic contest “DANCING ITALY” is created thanks to the incredible amount of desires of participants from all over the world. It is a very good opportunity for dancers and choreographers to show their technique.
The contest unites all forms of dance, choreographic styles of every description, and through the expressing of an artistic image by movements helps to reach a conversation between world cultures and schools and different generations. Independent choreographers, dance teams, schools and beginner dancers can take part in this art competition. The contest is put up as a meeting on the same platform of choreographers of different styles and schools in order to demonstrate their art fantasy and artistic talent. This is a showcase where experts of dance sector and audience will have
an opportunity to class promising dancers. In their production choreographers will be able to express themselves and their spirit. Participants will be rewarded with prizes, bonuses, accessories for dance, certificates signed by judges.

All our programs consist of two parts:
1. Participation in the competition and festival
2. Participation without competing in the competition in the framework of the festival program *.
* For the dancers who don’t want to participate in the competitive program, but wish to participate in the festival are provided with joint rehearsals, workshops and master classes, where they receive advice and an official certificate from the renowned international experts during a brief discussion in an open and friendly atmosphere.
