• BTO Modern Ensemble Headed to YAGP New York!

  • BTO had another great showing at this year’s Youth America Grand Prix semi-final in Pittsburgh. Louis Heisler placed in the top 12 of the pre-competitive division, while both of ballet tech of ohio’s ensembles placed in the top 6 of their respective divisions. This includes a work choreographed by  Claudia Rudolf Barrett (“Fantasy”), and another choreographed by Ka-Ron Brown Lehman (“Unity”).

    The modern ensemble has been invited to participate in the YAGP New York finals, and will compete the week of April the 13th. Instructor and choreographer, Ka-Ron Brown Lehman, says that the young ladies earned this opportunity with their “hard work, commitment, strong passion and emotional intent.”

    This is the second consecutive year that the Pre-Professional division of ballet tech of ohio will send an ensemble to the YAGP finals in New York City. Congratulations to all, and good luck!
