NGB dancers compete in YAGP finals

Several of our Next Generation Ballet dancers will be representing the Patel Conservatory as they compete in the upcoming Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) competition in New York.

The prestigious competition, which will be April 22 - 26, 2012, is a chance for dancers to be seen by top ballet schools and professional dance companies for consideration for summer programs. Many of our students have received full scholarships from prestigious ballet schools through YAGP competitions.

Congratulations to the following students who qualified for the New York finals by placing in the top three in their divisions at regional competitions:
Hannah Bettes

Gabrielle Beach, Hannah Stanford, Katherine Grones, Kemper Cassada, Landon Harris, Olivia Gusti, William Dugan and Hannah Bettes.

In addition, these students are among those performing in a group piece at the YAGP Gala, an annual performance that takes place after the competition. Patel Conservatory was chosen to perform in the Gala as the winner of the Outstanding School Award at last year’s YAGP finals.

Don't miss these amazing dancers in Swan Lake at the Straz Center on May 12, 2012.
