The competition was founded by Valentina Kozlova, former Principal Dancer at the Bolshoi Ballet and New York City Ballet. VKIBC is dedicated to creating a positive atmosphere, allowing dancers the opportunity to further develop their technique, artistry and understanding of the art of dance. The motto: "Preserving the Past, Discovering the Future".

The Competition is held over four days, culminating in a Gala event on the fifth day, presenting winners as well as guest artists. Senior dancers must present two compulsory pieces, one classical and one contemporary as part of the total requirement of seven performances in the Classical division. Contemporary division may enter with two solo pieces. Choreographers may present any number of pieces. Prizes awarded assist young dancers to further their pre-professional training and assist them to achieve professional goals.
