In the years past, the only way to see the future of dance was to attend the YAGP Finals and the signature Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow Gala performance at Lincoln Center. But now – for the first time in its history – YAGP is offering a chance for you to have the front row seat to see the top finalists from the U.S. Season Finals, performing alongside some of the world’s most celebrated professional ballet artists many of whom are YAGP alumni.

YAGP has been discovering the world’s most exciting young dance talent for the past 22 years – and we have continued to do so even in the midst of the pandemic. Throughout the 2020/2021 season, YAGP has conducted live and virtual auditions throughout the United States and internationally with strict adherence to all health and safety guidelines. The YAGP 2021 Season Finals will take place on May 10-16, 2021 in Tampa, FL – LIVE on stage at the beautiful David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.

The DIGITAL EDITION of YAGP 2021 Gala, “Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow,” features the up-close-and-personal, multi-camera recording of the live performances by the top finalists in the Junior Age division (ages 12-14), Senior Age division (ages 15-20) and an all-star cast of professional guest artists, including companies such as American Ballet Theatre, the San Francisco Ballet, and Alonzo King LINES Ballet….as well as special bonus features!

The DIGITAL EDITION of the YAGP 2021 Gala will be released on Sunday, May 23, 2021.

Purchasing a ticket to see the DIGITAL EDITION of the YAGP 2021 Gala is not only a way to see the future of dance, but also is a way to support the next generation of dance artists: the ticket price of $100 is 100% tax-deductible.
