19MASDANZA counts with an International Jury formed by prestigious personalities that come, primarily from dance, but also from the world of culture and the arts.

A Jury with experience in all fields of dance, dancers, choreographers, directors of festivals and artistic institutions, with the ability to value all the avant-garde proposals of the new choreographers of contemporary dance.

MASDANZA is very careful to choose a balanced group of personalities, that beyond their ability to value the selected works, they also have the capacity to promote the works of these new artists around the world, providing them with an opportunity to show their work.
