 (April 16, 2015 at 6:30pm) -

 This year’s program will feature Paloma Herrera, one of the most beloved dancers performing today, in Mauricio Wainrot’s Verano Porteño with partner Juan Pablo Ledo of Teatro Colón, Argentina. The piece will be performed to live accompaniment by the Toomai Quintet with violinist Dmitri Berlinsky. A World Premiere of Artistic Director Alexei Kremnev’s choreography Windy Sand will feature dancers from the Joffrey Ballet. The piece features original music by composer Karen LeFrak performed by pianist Tatiana Goncharova, and costumes by internationally renowned fashion designer and YAGP board member, B Michael. YAGP’s “Emerging Choreographer Series” will present the World Premiere of a ballet by Anton Pimonov (Mariinsky Ballet), which will feature the rising star of Mariinsky Ballet, Kristina Shapran, and YAGP Alum, Calvin Royal III (American Ballet Theatre). New York City Ballet’s Teresa Reichlen and Zachary Catazaro (YAGP Alum) will perform in a World Premiere by Guggenheim artist, Emery LeCrone, set to Mozart’s Menuet from String Quartet No. 15 that will be performed live by the musicians from the Toomai Quintet, with costumes by B Michael.

The program will also feature a World Premiere of Ballet 101 by Eric Gauthier. The program will feature the New York professional debut of two YAGP alumni, the Royal Ballet’s Melissa Hamilton (“Grand Prix” Award winner, YAGP 2007) – who, together with Edward Watson will perform Wayne McGregor’s Qualia – and The Mariinsky Ballet’s Kimin Kim (“Grand Prix” Award winner, YAGP 2012), who will perform the classic Pas de Deux from Le Corsaire with a fellow YAGP Alumna, Isabella Boylston (American Ballet Theatre). “Youth America Grand Prix is all about creating opportunities for dancers to further themselves professionally, and we are always especially proud to feature our alumni in any performance we organize – they are our true success stories,” says Larissa Saveliev, founder of YAGP. “Dancers like The Royal Ballet’s Melissa Hamilton are a perfect example of what YAGP does best: unnoticed at the audition, Melissa was not even admitted to the Royal Ballet School; but – she did not give up, she worked very hard to improve – and, after her success at the competition, she was discovered and invited to join the Royal Ballet company.”

The Gala, will also include performances by Xander Parish (Mariisnky Ballet), Semyon Chudin and Ekaterina Krysanova (Bolshoi Ballet), as well as international ballroom champions Denys Drozdyuk and Antonina Skobina.
