The Young Artist Class is an advanced class and looks at the whole dancer. This class encompasses three sections in which the dancer will be evaluated.

To be eligible for the Young Artist award, participants must participate in all class sections.

Only one gold medal may be awarded in the Ballet Young Artist Class in addition to a silver medal.
