Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) hosted reception for First Position Club members with Iain Webb (Director of The Sarasota Ballet) and David Vaughan (the foremost authority on Sir Frederick Ashton and the author of Frederick Ashton and His Ballets) before a performance of The Sarasota Ballet’s A Knight of the British Ballet at the Joyce Theater last night.

The Sarasota Ballet is renowned as America's foremost exponent of Ashton ballets and for their diverse repertoire. Sixteen of the company’s 51 professional dancers are YAGP alumni. YAGP’s mission is to support and develop world-class dancers ages 9-19 of all ethnic backgrounds by providing scholarship auditions and education and performance opportunities, and by serving as the global network of dance, connecting students, teachers, schools, dancers, dance companies and audiences.
