Exciting undertakings by your Young Patrons Circle

“Great choreography is not simply born on the great stages of the world; it is born in a studio with dancers and a choreographer’s vision.” PNB Artistic Director Peter Boal

For the past three seasons, YPC has been thrilled to sponsor a NEXT STEP choreographer in the creation of a new work. We are very excited to continue our support this season and look forward to seeing another world premiere in June. We will be announcing the name of this year's choreographer in the fall, so stay tuned!
