The program features classical, neoclassical, and contemporary masterpieces from 25 years of YAGP performances - from Don Quixote to Lady of the Camellias -  as well as a World Premiere by choreographer Joshua Beamish with Benjamin Freemantle and YAGP Alumni Philadelphia Ballet's Sterling Baca, Royal Ballet's Melissa Hamilton, ABT's Betsy McBride, SunMi Park, and English National Ballet's Vsevolod Maievskyi, with music from Hungarian Dances by Johannes Brahms. Another World Premiere will be choreographed by Mexican choreographer Julieta Martínez, featuring dancers from the graduating classes of the world's 4 leading dance academies: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of American Ballet Theatre (USA), Princess Grace Academy (Monaco), John Cranko School of Stuttgart Ballet (Germany), and Zurich Dance Academy (Switzerland). The program will also include some New York premieres.
