Give CityDance rising stars the opportunity to be seen by prestigious companies and artists from around the globe!

About the Project

Support CityDance Conservatory Dancers on the road to the world’s largest international student ballet competition, the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP)! Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support our aspiring young dancers with the choreography fees, travel accommodations and competition fees associated with this prestigious competition so that they can actualize their dance dreams!

Preparations for YAGP allow our young dancers to train intensively and learn original choreography with professionals of stature. They perform challenging classical variations staged and coached by Stanislav Issaev, a Nijinsky Award winner, Lorraine Spiegler, CityDance School & Conservatory Founding Artistic Director and other award-winning faculty members. CityDance students have attended YAGP Regional Competitions in cities all over the country, from Atlanta, Georgia to Pittsburgh, Denver and many more, as well as, the Finals in NYC. They are looking forward to traveling to these different cities with your support!

CityDance Conservatory Dancer Makenzie Davis is a role model to thousands of aspiring young dancers through her social media networks. She puts in 20-30 hours of rigorous training a week leading up to YAGP because she knows the value of the experience - it's her chance to gain recognition and to be seen by companies and artists from around the globe! There are opportunities to receive offers and scholarships from reputable dance companies and schools for summer study in the U.S. and abroad. 

The YAGP experience is a pivotal experience for dancers, and we're so proud to show the dance world the talent, maturity, dedication and artistry of CityDance Conservatory Dancers. Help us on our journey to YAGP this 2019 - 2020 season by supporting us today!
