Patience Clements


International Ballet Competition 2010

Accompanist Patience Clements will once again be accompanying classes at the International Ballet Competition in Jackson, Mississippi for the 2010 event. One of the world’s most prestigious dance events, the USA International Ballet Competition is a two-week “olympic-style” competition where tomorrow’s ballet stars vie for gold, silver, and bronze medals; cash awards and scholarships. Designated as the official USA Competition by a 1982 Joint Resolution of Congress, the USA IBC is held every four years, in the tradition of sister competitions in Varna, Bulgaria and Moscow, Russia.
