One award was especially meaningful to us, the YAGP Humanitarian Award, which was presented to Larissa Savliev for her work for the Ukrainian dancers. YAGP has placed over 100 Ukranian dancers on full scholarships during this time. Thank you for your meaningful work, personally meaningful to me and the people of my motherland. ~ Inna Bayer

Thank you to our dedicated teachers, who prepare our dancers to reach their full potential. Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the support of our dedicated families, who are our partners in supporting their children’s dreams. Competition is a wonderful opportunity for our dancers to come together with their peers to gain inspiration, engage with industry leaders, and master teachers. We are grateful to YAGP for providing career advancement opportunities for these aspiring dancers.
