It’s always exciting to discover talented dancers when they are still young and witness their artistic and technical improvement as they rise through the ranks of a professional company. I’ve found such gems in competitions like YAGP (Youth America Grand Prix), Prix de Lausanne and Varna, as well. Such is the case of Miko Fogarty, a ballerina to follow.

Here, at 13, Miko won the Gold Medal for her performance of Kitri from Don Quixote at WBC in Orlando, Florida in 2011.
