Youth America Grand Prix Hits San Diego

By on January 31, 2015

Youth America Grand Prix Semi-Finals took place in San Diego on January 16-18, attracting hundreds of dancers from across California, Arizona, and as far as Canada and Russia, for a weekend of fine classical and contemporary performances. We had a blast connecting with all of the talented young dancers and their parents at the Discount Dance Supply booth.

We saw many familiar faces on stage of dancers who have modeled for DDS past and present. It was also fun to see lots of new styles and performance wear being worn on stage and around the theater.

Congratulations to the following DDS models who took home top honors that weekend:
Savannah Louis from Long Beach Ballet Academy
Leili Rackow from California Dance Theatre
Megan Goldstein from Dmitri Kulev Ballet Academy

Please be sure to stop by the DDS booth at the YAGP Semi-Finals in Los Angeles on February 6-8, and in San Francisco on February 13-15. Come say hello, enter the raffle, learn about the YAGP Model Search, and pick up free dancewear goodies.
