Vote For Your Favorite Ballet Dancers!

Youth America Grand Prix has big news: They’re currently working on an exciting new documentary, Ballet’s Greatest Hits—and you can be part of it!

But first a little background. Earlier this year, YAGP held a “Ballet’s Greatest Hits” gala that boasted performances from some of ballet’s top dancers and was filmed by Emmy-winning Clemente D’Alessio.Now, they’ll be using the footage, along with dancer interviews, to create a documentary-style flick.

  • Gamzatti, Nikia, Solor, and Bronze Idol (La Bayadere)
  • Sugar Plum Fairy and the Nutcracker Prince (The Nutcracker)

And they’ll interview the winners for the flick!
