We are thrilled to be back for another incredible year of TIBC, the 11th Tokyo International Bellydance Competition! And we’re equally excited to announce that this year TIBC will be held ONLINE again, presenting you all with an unforgettable 2-day dance-packed event! 

Dancers from all over the globe can now enter the competition, with 11 different categories to choose from. We have a tremendous line-up of online judges from both Japan and abroad, along with wonderful gift sponsors, who will be presenting the winners with fantastic gifts/discounts from their online shops! As always, as part of TIBC, there will the "People's Choice", where viewers can watch, cheer and vote in real time, for their favorite performance in each category.


TIBC is one of the longest running bellydance competitions in the whole of Japan. We are truly grateful and proud to continuously present this amazing event to the bellydance community. The past year and a half has been a challenge for both dancers and organizers, with so many events being cancelled due to the pandemic. We are still adjusting to the current times, and we will keep on dancing, as well as continue finding ways to provide you with inspiring events!

We invite all dancers, both local and international, as well as all dance fans and the public, to partake in this exciting online event! We can’t wait to discover new, rising, talented performers from all around the globe, and we look forward to meeting even more friends, as well as seeing old ones (on screen) again! 

Let The Dancing Begin! Welcome to TIBC 2021!

"LIVE" Drum Solo 

 NEW challenge!

During TIBC 2020, we received amazing feedback regarding the “LIVE” Drum Solo Category , where both aspiring drummers and dancers could participate in the competition together. We expect this category to be quite the highlight this year! Joining the group of judges in the finals for this category are distinguished and renowned drummers, Tomohisa Ueda, Petashi, and Mitsuru Nagata.
