Adea, Cordero: Success in Helsinki International Ballet Competition
Adea’s win caps her illustrious career—in 2010 she won the Silver Medal at the USA International Ballet Competition in Jackson, MI, touted as the Olympics of ballet. In 2011, she won special awards at the Boston International Ballet Competition (the Maris Liepa Award for Artistry) and the Third Prize at the Seoul International Dance Competition. With Cordero, she also won the Lead Role in a Russian Ballet Performance in Boston.

As in all their previous competitions, Victor Ursabia, Ballet Philippines’ ballet master and CCP Dance School Director, stood as the pair’s coach and mentor. Adea and Cordero are completely Philippine trained. Both Adea and Cordero studied at the Philippine High School for the Arts (Adea was a Ballet major, while Cordero was in Theater Arts) and they both graduated with a Bachelor of Performing Arts Major in Dance from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
