YAGP TRAINING WITH CVCB ARTISTIC DIRECTOR SANDRA EMILE
Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) is the world's largest global network of Dance. It fulfills its dance education mission through scholarship auditions, master classes, alumni services, education and outreach activities, performances, and films.
YAGP Mission statement:
To support and develop world-class dancers ages 9-19, of all economic, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds by providing scholarship auditions, performance, and education opportunities, and by serving as the global network of dance, connecting students, teachers, schools, dance companies, dancers, and audiences.
The CVCB will offer the opportunity for up to six dancers to be sponsored by the CVCB and to represent the CVCB at the 2023 YAGP Performances. These dancers will be selected by the company director and rehearsal assistants during solo auditions to be held following company auditions. These dancers should have one classical ballet variation ready to perform in leotards with their music on the same day as the CVCB auditions. Dancers interested in representing the company can sign up for this audition simultaneously as they register for the CVCB company audition on the website.
Punctuality is essential. If a student is more than 10 minutes late for class, he/she will be asked to observe the class rather than dance.
Gum chewing is not permitted in class.
Instructors should be notified if a student must leave early or will not attend a class.
Students are advised to wait for their ride inside the building and to wear street clothing over leotards and tights when coming or leaving class.
Parents are responsible for students before and after classes.
Parents and non-enrolled students are not permitted in classrooms during instruction time.
