YAGP Gala 2010







The annually sold-out YAGP Galas have been thrilling NYC audiences for many years, and have become synonymous with the discovery of new dancers, choreographers, and companies. The unique format of the Gala, featuring the performances of international ballet stars and introducing the world’s brightest young dance talent quickly became an audience favorite and, according to Clive Barnes of the New York Post, “the highlight of the New York ballet season.”

YAGP 2010 Gala promises to be the most exciting yet. The Gala will feature YAGP alumni who currently perform with over 50 international ballet companies. Don't miss this unique chance to see the best young dancers from around the globe and the world's top professional dance artists in one spectacular Gala evening!
