Thanks to a new award, a dancer at the New York International Ballet Competition will receive a one-year contract with the Joffrey Ballet.

The Arpino Award, named for Joffrey artistic director and co-founder Gerald Arpino, who will select the winner, will be given at the end of the June 22-26 event at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center.

The competition's other awards include the Igor Youskevitch Award—a one-year contract with American Ballet Theatre for a dancer selected by ABT artistic director Kevin McKenzie—as well as the Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, and the Lefkowitz Award for Excellence.

The New York International Ballet Competition was founded by Ilona Copen in 1983, and has been held seven times since.
