Youth America Grand Prix Coaching
IMPROVE YOUR TECHNIQUE • MASTER VARIATIONS AND SOLOS • BUILD CONFIDENCE
Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) is the world’s largest student ballet scholarship competition that awards over $250,000 annually in scholarships to leading dance schools worldwide. The competition is held annually around the world and in New York City, and is open to dance students of all nationalities 9-19 years old.
I offer highly personalized preparation for YAGP that will improve your technique and confidence prior to this important competition.
Not only do I love the process of working with students in a personal and collaborative way, but I greatly enjoy seeing them share in the experience. Win or not, my students will walk away with a tremendous sense of ownership having mastered both a classical variation and a contemporary solo, as well as gained technically and artistically.
