Georgia Youth Ballet Senior Competing in NYC

Pharan Evans, a Senior Company member of Georgia Youth Ballet in Fayetteville, recently represented GYB at a Youth America Grand Prix regional semi-final competition in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Evans, who is also a senior at Starrs' Mill High School in Peachtree City, placed third in the competition and won the right to travel to New York City in April for the finals in the international competition.

While in New York, Evans will also get to participate in a dance workshop with the YAGP international finalists and see performances of many YAGP former winners who are now professional dancers at a host of well known companies.

Evans is interested in dancing professionally and is weighing her college and career options. Evans has danced with GYB at The Studio, currently owned by Randi Lancaster, throughout her high school years. She is the daughter of Doug and Brenda Evans. Mr. Evans is an anchor and reporter for Fox 5 TV in Atlanta.
