Participation in Competitions

Participation in YAGP to represent this studio is by invitation only.  The recommendation is made by the SBS teacher with approval by the Director. If a student/family is interested, they can ask a teacher for advice and information. Here is some information about the format and the cost. Please keep in mind that that participation in YAGP requires commitment and dedication.

  • Preparation and rehearsals run weekly/sometimes twice a week from September through to the Competition in March. Additional rehearsals may be called to prepare for the recital.
  • Participation requires weekly additional private lessons (teachers set their own rate) + studio rental fee.
  • All Competition fees are in addition to private lessons. In 2024  he competition fees were $125 to register, plus $120 per solo or $60 per person for an ensemble piece.
  • YAGP jacket (optional) $60, sourced and purchased by SBS.
  • Costumes are sourced and rented/purchased by families in consultation with their teacher.
  • Travel to competition is paid for by the family including any overnight stays if needed.
  • If a teacher has to travel to the competition, families may be asked to assist with teacher expenses.
  • The YAGP NY competition is usually the last week of Feb/Beginning of March. We have also participated in the Boston competition in January. Fees are paid per venue so 2 venues, double the fees.
