• YAGP AMBASSADOR SEARCH


  • BECOME A YAGP AMBASSADOR

    The world's largest dance family is looking for Ambassadors.


    Through this unique program, we aim to inspire and uplift the global dance community by celebrating YAGP alumni – the outstanding young dance artists who are ready to go beyond dance performance and would like to share their passion, dedication and inspiration with others. 


    As student representatives of Youth America Grand Prix, YAGP Ambassadors will help spread awareness of the performance and education opportunities YAGP provides to dancers around the world. They will share their extraordinary passion and dedication to the arts, lend their unique artistic voice to deliver the message of YAGP, and represent the spirit of the YAGP community on social media and on stages around the world.


    In order to apply, dancers must be registered for any YAGP 2022 Season Semi-Final – or be among the top winners from a previous season.



    YAGP Ambassador Benefits

    • Invitation to perform as a special guest artist at YAGP Galas around the world
    • Individual profile as a YAGP Ambassador on the YAGP website
    • After the initial registration for one (1) YAGP Semi-Final, Ambassadors will have the opportunity to participate in any other additional U.S. or International Semi-Final, with registration costs covered by YAGP

    YAGP Ambassador Responsibilities

    • By accepting the invitation to join this program and serve as a representative of YAGP on social media and worldwide, a YAGP Ambassador agrees that YAGP is the only U.S.-based ballet competition in which the dancer participates. This agreement does not exclude the possibility of YAGP Ambassadors participating in 1) non-U.S. based international ballet competitions, 2) as a member of an ensemble at other U.S.-based ballet competitions, or 3) competing as a soloist at multi-genre/commercial-based competitions and conventions.

    *Dancers selected to become YAGP Ambassadors will still be eligible to serve as ambassadors for dancewear companies.




    BECOME A YAGP CHAMPION

    Dancers who are not selected to become YAGP Ambassadors – or may not be ready for the visibility and the time commitment required of YAGP Ambassadors – may apply to join the family of YAGP representatives in the selective role of the YAGP CHAMPION.
