The primary fight at the X Moscow Ballet Competition was between the participants from Ukraine and Russia. In the senior group, gold medals went to Evgeniya Obraztsova (Russia) and three dancers from Ukraine – Anastasia Matvienko, Viktor Ischuk, Yaroslav Salenko. In the junior group, gold medals were awarded to Chinara Ilizade (Russia), Kristina Shevchenko (Ukraine), and Ivan Vasilyev (Belarus).
Throughout the competition, the Ukrainian dancers demonstrated the high art of contemporary male dance – virtuosic, strong-willed, and noble. Despite the differences in creative personalities, they were united by a standard style of the Kyiv school. The same style of the Moscow school manifested itself in students' strongest performances of the Moscow State Academy of Choreography. Chinare Ilizade (gold medal), Ekaterina Krysanova (silver medal), and Natalia Osipova (bronze medal) presented themselves especially brilliantly.
The choreography competition, held for the first time in 2001, was a sort of a tryout. Although the Jury did not award a single prize, confining itself to the awarding of three diplomas, the beginning of competitive support for choreographers' art has been laid. The competition highlighted the weaknesses of contemporary choreographic art and, most importantly, outlined its development prospects.
Traditionally, regular meetings were held in the Press Centre. Journalists and critics met regularly with members of the Jury, honorary guests, and teachers. Numerous audiences gathered for a conversation with organizers of international competitions and festivals in Varna, Perm, Novosibirsk, Seoul, Riga, Kyiv, and other cities.
