Stars of Today Meet Stars of Tomorrow
: Annually sold-out and highly acclaimed by critics worldwide, YAGP Galas featuring the world's most promising young dance students and the stars of today's leading international dance companies have been thrilling New York City audiences since the inception of YAGP in 1999. The unique format of the "Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow" Gala featuring the performances of international ballet stars and introducing the world's brightest young dance talent quickly became an audience favorite and, according to the late Clive Barnes of The New York Post, "the highlight of the New York ballet season." The YAGP 2012 "Stars of Today Meet the Stars of Tomorrow" Gala featured an international all-star cast of today's leading dance artists led by Tamara Rojo and Sergei Polunin (Principal Dancers, The Royal Ballet).
