Miami  - YoungArts, the core program of the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts, and seven of its Miami-based alumni will be featured in the HBO series MasterClass, directed and produced by documentary filmmaking team Kirk Simon and Karen Goodman. The series, premiering April 18, tells the story of nine world-class creative artists sharing their art and life experience with YoungArts students who represent the best of a new generation of talented artists in America. Dancers Melissa Fernandez, Ernest Baker II and Gentry George are featured in the master classes of Jacques D'Amboise and Bill T. Jones, while Visual Artists Cathryn Garcia-Menocal, James Sprang and Sheena Klimoski are featured in the master classes of Frank Gehry and Olafur Eliasson.

Over the past 29 years, YoungArts has been dedicated to identifying
and supporting talented young artists in the literary, performing and visual arts, providing them with access to top-notch artistic training, including Master Classes with some of the most important artists of our time. The series features YoungArts Master Teachers Placido Domingo, Liv Ullmann, Frank Gehry, Bill T. Jones, Michael Tilson Thomas, Olafur Eliasson, Edward Albee, Jacques D'Amboise and Julian Schnabel. Each episode of MasterClass highlights the importance of mentorship and the significant impact it has on the lives and career development of young artists. It playfully yet powerfully depicts a new generation of artists who are given the unique opportunity to meet and work with legends in the fields where they aspire to become legends themselves.

MasterClass is produced and directed by award-winning documentary filmmakers Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon, who also serve on the Board of Trustees for YoungArts. Simon and Goodman's work has garnered four Oscar nominations, many Emmys and the duPont-Columbia Award for Independent Programming. The first episode of MasterClass airs April 18 at 5:30 p.m. on HBO.
