Black Tie International:

Kamie Lightburn hosted a luncheon in honor of Youth America Grand Prix, on Monday April 18th in the Ballroom at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach. Attendees gathered for a group portrait with guests of honor, The Royal Ballet (UK) Principal Dancer Mayara Magri and La Scala Ballet Principal Dancer Jacopo Tissi, in their Swan Lake costumes; a piece they performed at YAGP's 2022 Gala in Tampa the following evening. 


Mayara and Jacopo shared behind-the-scenes stories from their lives as professional dancers, including funny unexpected moments that happen live on stage. Guests were treated to a video of Jacopo’s exquisite performance with Russia's Bolshoi Ballet, which he recently left for Italy's La Scala, and Mayara rehearsing for her performance with England's Royal Ballet.


Kamie thanked guests for coming to support the arts and shared, "I'm inspired by these talented artists and by YAGP's work to uplift these dancers, and dancers everywhere".


YAGP’s Founding Director of External Affairs, Sergey Gordeev, hosted a Q&A with the dancers and said, "Dance has the power to uplift the human spirit, especially in troubled times. To dancers, dance is their life, and for 23 years we have done everything we can to give dancers the opportunity to do what they love. Currently, YAGP is working on helping Ukrainian dance students - and we are pleased to share that over 100 of them have now been brought to safety. They are continuing their training on scholarship at the world’s leading dance academies in Europe and the US."


Guests included Eleanora Kennedy, Lauren Day Roberts, Janna Bullock, Yaz Hernandez, Linda Adelson, Kameron Neth, Kim Renk, Brewer Schoeller, Emily Leonard, Bettina Anderson, Carol Moran, and Eileen Judell.


YAGP is the world's largest ballet scholarship organization; a non-profit that scouts talented aspiring dancers all over the globe, connects them with the world's top schools, and facilitates their careers as professional dancers. In the 23 years since inception, over $4.5 million has been awarded in scholarships to the world’s leading dance schools, with up to $500,000 now awarded annually. Over 150,000 young dancers – ages 9 to 19 – of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds have participated in YAGP's international workshops, auditions, classes, and dance awareness events. Today, more than 12,000 young dancers audition annually worldwide. More than 450 Youth America Grand Prix alumni are now dancing with 80 professional companies around the world.
