Youth America Grand Prix competitors

Congratulations to our newest Youth America Grand Prix Regional Competition winner, Daniel Durrett
 



Daniel came to the Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy in 2005 on the invitation of Victoria Morgan after she watched him take class at Uptown Arts. Since then he has grown through the ranks of the Academy and is now a Level 7 dancer, the highest level in the Academy. Most recently, he has performed with Cincinnati Ballet as the Nutcracker Prince. He won first place in the senior men's classical solos and second place in the senior men's contemporary solos at the regional Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) competition in Indianapolis. On April 12th, he will be competing at the National Youth America Grand Prix in New York. The Academy would like to wish him the best of luck!
