Heather M. Goodwin, February 15, 2015


Local dancers recently competed for a chance to earn scholarships to professional ballet companies and to perform at David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York.

LakeCities Ballet Theatre (LBT) sent six dancers to the 2015 Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) Dallas competition. There, five made the top 24 soloists. Mackenna Pieper, who attends school in Lewisville, won first place in the senior division. Carly Greene made the top 12 in the junior classical division.


“There are more than 100 soloists in each category, so I think they did great,” said Kelly Lannin, artistic director for LBT.
