Four Interlochen dancers made the trip to Chicago over the weekend to participate in the Youth America Grand Prix, the largest and most well known dance competition in the U.S. and now the world. After months of preparation, the dancers joined over 200 other dancers from ages 10 to 21 to compete, connect with colleagues and take master classes given by the judges. The Interlochen dancers did very well. Both Austin Meiteen and Derek Brockington took first place in contemporary for junior and senior divisions. The dancers placed in the top 12 for classical. Grace Wiedmeyer and Gabriella Dorman were two of three girls offered scholarships to the summer program at Miami City Ballet. It was an exciting weekend!
