JACKSON, Miss. - The 2014 USA International Ballet competition will be held in Jackson over the next two weeks.

More than 100 dancers from 21 countries will compete. The United States, Japan, and Brazil have the most dancers in the competition. It will be held at the newly renovated Thalia Mara Hall. Mara was a dance director and moved the first competition to Jackson in 1979. 

The 2014 competition runs from Saturday through June 29. Competitors are vying for medals, scholarships, cash and maybe a job offer from a ballet company.
