Thank you, YAGP for creating an opportunity for dancers to share their art with peers from around the world, develop global friendships and professional networks, and gain inspiration and a wider perspective on the depth of this artform. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, which brought bonding time for our dancers, parents, and faculty.
