Orlando Ballet School – TOP Dancers at YAGP New York City Finals April 28, 2017 |

Congratulations Vania Valdez, Emma Guertin, Boris Ceballos III, Jolie Lombardo and Chloe Misseldine for representing Orlando Ballet School at the YAGP New York City Finals.

2017 has been a wonderful year for Orlando Ballet School, not just here in the Orlando community but also on the national stage. From earning an Outstanding School Award at the YAGP semi finals and gold medals at the American Dance Competition, OBS students once again put Orlando Ballet School at the top of the ranks during the New York City Youth American Grand Prix Finals.


In the Senior Age Division Chloe Misseldine wowed the judges with her talent, maturity and artistry. Chloe earned 2nd place in the division and a spot in the top 12. Chloe has been training with Orlando Ballet School her entire life starting in OBS’s Dress Up & Dance program. Her achievements are a true testament of Orlando Ballet School’s mission.


Jolie Rose Lombardo earned a spot in the top 12 in the Junior Age Division. This is a huge accomplishment following the Gold and Bronze Medals she earned from ADC this year and placing 2nd at the YAGP Semi Finals in Tampa.
