The start of the National Meeting of Young Ballet-dancers “Anastas Petrov” was given in 1982. Time and time again the meeting calls the talented young ballet generation to an inspired ballet competition and is a living monument to the creative work of Anastas Petrov – the apostle and the grand master, the patriarch of Bulgarian ballet, born and raised in Dobrich. The greatest expression of the respect that Bulgarian artists of all generations have for Anastas Petrov is the creative meeting of young dancers. The national meeting takes place every other year. After a break of few years, during which Dobrich organized only gala concerts, in 2010 the town became again the host of the National Meeting. Organizers are: Dobrich Municipality and the “International Ballet Competition – Varna” Foundation. Dobrich’s citizens and visitors always look forward to greeting the young ballet dancers. Their performances excite with their beauty and harmony.
