The National YoungArts Foundation offers a yearly award to talented young people in the visual, literary, design and performing arts fields. In 2016, that could be you!

Many of the dancers we know and love have been recognized by the YoungArts Foundation—in 2015 alone finalists included Sarah Pippin, one of our 2014 CMS finalists; honorable mentions included our 2013 CMS winner Hayden Hopkins, tap queen Devin Ruth and our comp crush (and one of the stars of our web series "The Road to Nationals") Jake Tribus; and merit winners included our other 2014 CMS finalist Alyssa Allen.

Whew! That's a lot of talent in one lineup. (Also, do we know how to pick them or what?) YoungArts will be accepting applicants from April to October, so you have plenty of time to polish your application. Dream of joining the ranks of Sarah, Ricky Ubeda and Desmond Richardson? Apply here!
