Future stars with Grishko

Posted on October 26, 2018

Stefania Gashtarska Grishko

Calling young dancers! Dancewear company Grishko is looking for future stars to represent the brand. Participants in the Grishko Future Star and Grishko Generation programmes will become representatives of the company, introduced to more than 120,000 followers on social media. Their photographs may be used in posters or in advertisements, and they will receive unique products, special prices and bonuses, plus the chance to network and connect within the dance world.

The Grishko Future Star programme is open to dancers up to the age of 14. The Grishko Generation programme is for dancers of 15 and over. Participants are chosen for one year, with the possibility of longer-term cooperation. Current participants are welcome to apply for the next selection – and lucky dancers chosen for a second year will receive a special surprise! Participants must train and perform exclusively in Grishko pointe shoes.

To apply, complete the first application form on the Grishko website. This contains general questions about education, goals and attitude to Grishko products. The deadline for this first stage is November 7, with results published on November 15. Information about the final stages of the contest will then be published.
