Meet some super talented young people.
Yesterday I had the great pleasure of watching Samantha Pille and David Donnelly rehearse with choreographer Heather Britt. They are preparing for the YAGP (Youth American Grand Prix) semi-finals in Chicago in January. YAGP is the world's largest student ballet competition and incredible young people from all over the world compete by performing short classical and contemporary works.
Heather is working with Sammy and David on their contemporary piece, with an original score by Peter Adams.
It was incredible to watch. They have amazing technique already memorized in their bodies and are now on the journey of a lifetime to showcase their skills in Chicago. If they win there, they will move on to NY.
I will update you after Chicago!
