There, she achieved the highest awards in the Royal Academy of Dance and Cecchetti methods. In 2013, she received awards from Youth America Grand Prix and American Ballet Competition.

Young attended summer programs at the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.  In 2013, she was accepted into the ABT Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School where she trained until joining ABT Studio Company in January 2015.

Her repertoire with the Company includes a Flower Girl in Don Quixote, Moyna in Giselle, one of the Nutcracker’s Sisters in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Nutcracker, the pas de trois and a big swan in Swan Lake, and a featured role in Songs of Bukovina. She created a leading role in Overlook and featured roles in Collage & Creed and Praedicere.

"Our repertoire requires that they be fine actors and credible onstage. From Day One, Remy [had an] amazing natural way of moving and reacting and expressing herself. In that sense, she really is quite a standout — a total method actor-dancer."
