Prix de Lausanne

Created in 1973, the Prix de Lausanne is an annual international competition for young dancers aged 15 to 18 years old. Its goal is to discover, promote and support the finest talents. More than 70 of the world’s most prestigious dance schools and companies, such as the Royal Ballet in London, the Paris Opera Ballet School, the Hamburg Ballet School (John Neumeier), the Princess Grace Academy in Monaco, the Vaganova Ballet Academy in St. Petersburg, the Ballet Nacional Sodre in Montevideo, the Hong Kong Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet School and the Australian Ballet, are associated with the Prix de Lausanne and support its activities.

One of a kind, the Prix de Lausanne offers – for almost 48 years - an exceptional experience for a yearly selected group of youthful talents to nurture their skills and step towards a professional career. It is also an opportunity for dance professionals who can observe and establish contacts with the candidates.
