As every year, the Princess Grace Dance Academy Gala is an opportunity to admire the exceptional level of students and the quality of the courses offered.

Excellence and diversity are the hallmarks of the Academy whose goal is to train future generations of dancers, teaching them both demanding and multiple learning. and allow each of the students to join an international dance company.

For the 2018 edition, the Academy Gala will be held in two stages on June 23 and 24, starting at 8 pm.

Graduating students will offer a first part entitled “No farewells” and perform a series of high-flying variations that prefigure their entry into the professional world, which will also provide an opportunity to greet and thank the Monaco public who saw the students grow and evolve year after year.

The second part of the Gala will invite the public to discover a series of pieces created for the students of the Brahms Academy of Hungarian Dance. These twenty-one famous dances, whose music evolves between the Gypsy universe and romanticism, enables choreographers to offer different styles ranging from classical to contemporary through the character.

Among the choreographers invited to create for these young dancers will be Jean-Christophe Maillot, Michel Rahn, Eugenio Buratti, Francesco Nappa, Sara Lourenco, Grigory Chicherin, Jeroen Verbruggen and also a composition of YoungSeo Ko, a student of the Academy.

The graduating students from the 2017/2018 season and the companies they will be joining next year are as follows: Youngseo Ko (Korean) Norwegian National Ballet in Oslo; Yuka Matsumoto (Japanese) Berlin Staatsballett; Natatia Warzabluk (American) Ballett Zürich; Ivana Bueno Garces (Mexican/American) English National Ballet in London; Yuria Isaka (Japanese) Berlin Staatsballett; Min-Ji Nam, (Korean) Stuttgart Staatsballet; Martino Semenzato (Italian) Stuttgart Staatsballet; and 1st at Prix de Lausanne Shale Wagman (Canadian) English National Ballet, London.
