Youth America Grand Prix

Youth America Grand Prix is the world’s largest student ballet competition that awards over $250,000 scholarship annually to leading dance schools all over the world. This competition will be held annually worldwide and in New York City.

This competition was launched in 1999 by two former ballet dancers of the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet, Larissa and Gennadi Saveliev. YAGP was created with a mission to provide extraordinary educational and professional opportunities to young dancers, acting as a stepping stone to a professional dance career. It aims to fulfill its mission by offering:

• Educational opportunities for dance students around the world
• Opportunity to receive contracts to dance companies worldwide
• Scholarships to leading dance schools in the U.S. and abroad
• Invaluable professional exposure to world-renowned dance professionals
• Performance opportunities on some of the world’s most prestigious stages and at dance festivals around the world
• Workshops with the renowned master teachers and judges of the competition

The annually sold-out Youth America Grand Prix Closing Night Gala featuring YAGP finalists on the same program as the stars of the world’s leading dance companies, "Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow,” will take place at New York City Center on Tuesday, March 22, 2011.
