The YAGP Job Fair was initiated in 2011, and was so successful we are bringing it back to you again this year. There were over 25 directors with us in New York, and over 35 jobs were offered! The Job Fair is open to current YAGP NYC Soloist Finalists seeking professional employment, as well as our previous NYC Soloist Finalists who are looking for other opportunities. Having established itself as a premier source of scholarships to the world's leading dance academies, YAGP has now expanded its mission to include providing professional employment opportunities to talented dancers worldwide. This is the special audition for our young dancers to be seen in one place by many Artistic Directors from companies from around the world.  The YAGP 2013 Job Fair Audition Classes are scheduled for Thursday, April 18 or Friday, April 19, 2013. The audition classes are free of charge to accepted present and former NY Soloist Finalists and by invitation only. You will be notified by email of your acceptance as space is limited and once we reach our capacity, we will close registration. All participants must submit a resume, registration form, a head shot, and a full body shot, postmarked or submitted online.
