Hanoi (VNA) – A national contest for young choreographers will be held in mid June in the southern city of Can Tho to promote young artists.

As entries for the contest, choreographers can present a short dance play that is under eight minutes with a maximum of five dancers.

The participants should not have attended any professional dance contest before.

The topics for the performances may cover daily life, patriotism, praise the goodness in humanity and criticise the cruelty in society.

Folk, modern, European classic and modern ballet dance languages should be used in the dance plays.-VNA
