A special weekend at the Youth America Grand Prix elite ballet competition in Pittsburgh, PA. Beyond proud of our faculty who work so incredibly hard with our students so they can achieve their potential. The process is the most important part of attending competitions such as YAGP because it allows for tangible progress to be demonstrated and provides the opportunity to build confidence that help our dancers achieve their future goals.
We are so proud of our students, what a weekend! Each and every MCPA dancer was rewarded for their hard work and discipline. It is the best feeling as a teacher to see the look of accomplishment on our student's faces. We were blessed with that this weekend. We ask our dancers to each enjoy the process they just went through, take the coaching and feedback they received and use it to help them reach their next goals. Congratulations to all!
