Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) – the world’s largest ballet scholarship competition –  is bringing together their extensive repertoire of alumni and affiliated dance professionals to offer an array of free online ballet classes. Starting Monday March 23, 2020 with Luca Masala (Artistic Director of Monaco’s Princess Grace Academyand continuing Tuesday March 24, 2020 with Sasha De Sola (YAGP Alumna and Principal Dancer at San Francisco Ballet). Upcoming classes include Maria Khoreva (Mariinsky Ballet), Kathryn Morgan (Miami City Ballet), Peter Stark (Boston Ballet) and TONY-nominated Broadway performer Karine Plantadit (YAGP Judge and Emcee, former dancer with the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater) who will teach a special course on the Horton technique for ballet dancers. As the YAGP community practices social distancing, their social media channels (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube) will provide these daily classes at 12pm EST, and they will remain available on each channel permanently.

YAGP’s mission remains - to ensure the future of dance. “A lot of people are posting guided dance instruction, but it can be hard for parents and for kids to determine whom to trust, and how to get quality training from home,” says YAGP Founder and Artistic Director, Larissa Saveliev. “As a global network for dance, we are in a unique position to bring together a group of world-class professionals, whose expertise meets the high standard of dance education that we’ve upheld since our founding in 1999. We hope these classes will provide young dancers with a great challenge to work on while they are at home.”

These online ballet classes are an addition to YAGP’s existing roster of online original educational programming, including YAGP’s existing library of master classes, YAGP’s Q&A series “Ask the Expert”, and YAGP’s “Tips on Technique” short video series, featuring mastery of a particular move or exercise.
