The International School of Ballet congratulates its student Taylor Yanke who has been awarded a scholarship to the full-time program at the Académie Princesse Grace in Monaco. The program begins this September 2017.

Enrolment in this academy is strictly limited. Only a few dancers are chosen each year from applicants all over the world. Many of the students are top winners at international ballet competitions.

Established in 1975 under director Luc Masala, the academy has become one of the most exclusive schools of dance. It is renowned for its excellence in training and has received numerous awards from the prestigious Prix de Lausanne.

Taylor Yanke will be the first Canadian girl to attend this academy. She is also a finalist for the Youth America Grand Prix and competed in New York in April.

Taylor is only 14 years old and has trained for 11 years extensively at the International School of Ballet under the direction of Mrs. Umran Sumen and her talented faculty. The school, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this season, is proud of Taylor for her achievements. It also takes pride in continuing its dedication to the art of classical ballet.
