Training and Coaching

Charleston Ballet Center for Dance s offering new performance opportunities this season. An important part of this offering is our participation in the Youth America Grand Prix. The school approaches the YAGP, not as a competition, but as an opportunity to increase a dancer’s confidence on stage and fine-tune their stage performances.  The exposure to scholarships, apprenticeships and opportunity for additional stage time experience is invaluable to a young dancer. .  The Professional Training Program”, is designed for dedicated students aged 12-19, who are focused on a professional career and also possess the many attributes necessary for success. Participating dancers must either be home-schooled or early-release students so they may experience rigorous daily training in a healthy manner that doesn’t overburden them. The program is designed for self-driven, high achievers who excel physically and mentally..

In the past 15 years, YAGP has reached over 50,000 dancers worldwide and awarded over $3 million in scholarships to the world’s leading dance schools.  Over 300 YAGP alumni are now dancing with 80 companies around the world, including American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Paris Opera Ballet, The Royal Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, Dutch National Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet, among many others.  This incredible result is possible because of individuals like you, who are dedicated to helping YAGP discover and cultivate dance talent worldwide. 
YAGP is devoted to lessening the financial burdens of our participants in order to ensure their future in dance and provide them with as many audition and performance opportunities as possible.
