Youth American Grand Prix 2020
Eleven Southold dancers participated in the 2020 Regional Youth America Grand Prix competition in Indianapolis, March 5-8. YAGP is a prestigious International Ballet competition with 25 regional locations and eight international locations that include 12,000 dancers annually. Eight of Southold’s dancers competed in a total of 11 solo variations in classical and contemporary dance. Southold Dance Theater is proud to announce that Frederick Stuckwisch took 1st Place in the Men’s Senior Classical Division and Ben Zusi placed 2nd. Both of these young men were invited to compete in the International Finals in NYC (which has subsequently been canceled.) Southold’s ensemble of eight dancers placed in the Top 6 in the Ensemble Division. On the basis of their YAGP performance, these ensemble dancers were all offered positions, with no auditions necessary, in a Summer Intensive Program in Tampa, Florida. Southold takes great pride in our dancers’ accomplishments and in their deportment at the competition as they supported and valued each other and their competitors.
Congratulations to our YAGP Participants
Ainsley Hennel, Jillian Henning, Kendra Mohnke, Regina Murphy, Sophie O’Brien, Olivia Ritschard, Mia Sheppard, Frederick Stuckwisch, Teagan Wright, Ben Zusi, and Julia Zusi.
