New York, NY—Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) presents “Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow” on Friday, April 27 at 7:00 PM at David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. This annual event has become synonymous with the discovery of new dancers, choreographers, and companies, featuring the performances of international ballet stars and introducing the world’s brightest young dance talent — finalists from the 2012 competition. The evening’s program includes world premieres choreographed by Jiří Bubenĺček, Marcelo Gomes, and Justin Peck, and NYC debuts by Yonah Acosta and Friedemann Vogel, and performances by a select group of 2012 YAGP finalists, plus celebrity masters of ceremonies Ana Gasteyer (SNL) and Brian d’Arcy James (Shrek the Musical, Next to Normal, Smash).

The evening will begin with 20-25 solos, pas de deuxs, and ensembles by the finalists from the 2012 competition, chosen that morning by the judges (the full performance roster will be available on April 27). The pieces chosen represent the best overall performers, including some scholarship winners. The First Act’s finale includes 250 YAGP finalists performing Carlos dos Santos, Jr.’s Grand Defile set to music by Tchaikovsky.

The program’s Second Act is devoted to performances by “Stars of Today” and includes three world premieres; Marcelo Gomes’ Untitled danced by Misty Copeland, Justin Peck’s Untitled performed by Teresa Reichlen and Matthew Golding (YAGP Alumnus), and Jiří Bubenĺček’s Gentle Memories performed by Ekaterina Kondaurova, Islom Baimuradov, Otto Bubenĺček, and Jon Vallejo to original music by Karen LeFrak.

YAGP alumnus and past recipient of the prestigious Grand Prix Award, Sergei Polunin will perform with Tamara Rojo. Their performance marks Rojo’s first in New York in over 8 years, and Polunin’s first since his sudden decision to leave The Royal Ballet. Rojo and Polunin’s partnership has often been compared to that of Fonteyn and Nureyev.

Also performing are noted Cuban dancers, Yolanda Correa Frias, Yoel Carreño, and Yonah Acosta in his New York debut. Yonah Acosta is the nephew of ballet great Carlos Acosta, and Yoel Carreño is the half-brother of Jose Manuel Carreño.

Thank you so much for posting about the events! However, we discovered there was a mistake in the press release. The prices for the gala are: 500, 1000, 1,500, and NYC debuts by Yonah Acosta and Friedemann Vogel, and performances by a select group of 2012 YAGP finalists, plus celebrity masters of ceremonies Ana Gasteyer (SNL) and Brian d’Arcy James (Shrek the Musical, Next to Normal, Smash). A three-course dinner will follow the performances in the David H. Koch Theater Promenade.
