I’m getting married a week from today, which is why Amy and I went to three dance lessons last week. We’re not looking to do anything special. We’re just making a last ditch effort to be merely below average when 200+ people watch our first dance. The standards for dancing ability are a bit different for Youth America Grand Prix, which is a New York, NY based non-profit that runs “the world’s largest student ballet scholarship competition.” Every year they put up more than $250,000 in scholarships so that some of the world’s most talented young dancers can get the training that they need to pursue a professional career. The competition was started in 1999 by two Bolshoi Ballet dancers, and has gained momentum ever since.

So You Think You Can Dance?

Students between the ages of 9 and 19 and of all nationalities are eligible for the Youth America Grand Prix. There are competitions all across the world, as well as a variety of workshops and other programs that promote ballet. The end goal is to “provide extraordinary educational and professional opportunities to young dancers, acting as a stepping stone to a professional dance career.” The best way to evaluate the effectiveness of Youth America Grand Prix is to see what their alumni are doing. I truly don’t know what to make of that list, but it certainly looks impressive. If you’d like to consider a career with Youth America Grand Prix, check out their Idealist page. Right now they’re looking for an Executive Assistant, a Development Assistant, and a Social Media and Website Consultant. The first two positions seem better suited to a new or recent grad.
