Every aspiring and star ballet dancer follows a path to their dream. At Youth America Grand Prix, we are proud of the fact that many of today’s star ballet dancers and ballerinas, from world famous companies such as New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Paris Opera Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, the Royal Ballet and Dutch National Ballet, chose to make YAGP a part of their journey from the studio to the largest stages around the world.

The theme of our YAGP’s annual New York Gala is “The Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow”. On the YAGP Ballet Archive channel, we proudly present the ballet stars of today, when they were the stars of tomorrow. Here you will find great performances of the most beloved classical ballet variations and contemporary routines as performed during Youth America Grand Prix events from years past, and get a front-row look at the talent and potential of these extraordinary ballet dancers as shine for the first time on our stages.
