Congratulations to our Conservatory Dancers who competed in YAGP Atlanta!

CityDance would like to celebrate the outstanding students who performed at this year's Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) in Atlanta.

Makani Yerg, Katherine Pawlowski, Josiah Lax, Alexa Torres, Cole Chertok and Sarah Mulberg exhibited strong classical and contemporary technique as well as distinguished and elegant performances both in the studio and on the stage.

Katherine was recognized as "Top 24 Classical."

We are thrilled to announce that Makani (2nd place "Classical"), Alexa and Cole (3rd place "Pas de Deux" with Cole receiving 3rd place "Classical") will be going to the YAGP New York Finals in April where they will perform for an international audience. Both Makani's classical and contemporary pieces will be presented in the New York Finals.

A big congratulations to all of our dancers!

"I would like to extend a heartfelt and special thank you to our world-class teachers, coaches and choreographers who prepared them including: Stanislav Issaev, Ludmila Morkovina, Irina Vakhromeeva, Andrea Long, Robert J. Priore, Therese Gahl, and Sarah J. Ewing."
