  1. Selected Candidate information Prix de Lausanne have now published the details of the candidates selected for 2021. There are two lists, one list giving candidates names, their nationality, school they attend and in which country and another one by country, showing how many applied and how many were accepted. As far as I could see connected to UK there is one British girl studying at a school in Portugal and one Japanese girl studying at Elmhurst.
  2. Press release Prix de Lausanne 2021 Video Edition International ballet competition Lausanne, November 20th, 2020: Due to the sanitary situation and related restrictions, the Fondation en faveur de l'Art Chorégraphique has had to rethink the usual form of its main event, the Prix de Lausanne. Therefore, the Fondation announces the new format for this year’s competition: The Prix de Lausanne will exceptionally be a Video Edition with a 9-member Jury present in Switzerland. Due to the sanitary situation and related restrictions, the Fondation en faveur de l'Art Chorégraphique has had to reinvent its main event but its priorities remain the same: providing opportunities for young talented dancers and fulfilling its mission as a charitable foundation. The Fondation is therefore pleased to announce that the 49th edition of its Prix de Lausanne, from January 31st to February 7th, 2021, will be a Video Edition. The event will require only the Jury’s 9-member presence on site in Switzerland. Every selected candidate will be able to demonstrate their talent and compete for a scholarship or apprenticeship via video submission and not in person in Switzerland. Classical and contemporary variations, as well as a ballet class, will be evaluated and marked separately. As in previous years, 20 finalists will be selected and judged at the end of the week, before the winners’ announcement during the Finals on Saturday, February 6th, 2021. The Prix de Lausanne’s Partner Schools and Companies will follow the competition week and will be able watch the videos privately through our Networking Forum and thus offer their support to all of the 81 candidates. The Prix de Lausanne team is also working on coordinating online classes taught by excellent teachers and coaches for the candidates before the competition begins. The Young Creation Award, a new competition in search of young choreographic talent and sponsored by the renowned choreographer Heinz Spoerli, will also be held via video. The Prix de Lausanne jury will be able to watch and judge the submitted finalists' choreographies and award the two best young choreographers after the judging on Wednesday, February 3rd, 2021. The choreographies will be performed publicly at the Prix de Lausanne 2022. This year's record participation for the Prix de Lausanne (399 applicants from 43 countries around the world) emphasizes more than ever a need for keeping the art of dance alive. With the support and loyalty from its partners, dance lovers and sponsors, the Fondation gives creativity and talent a chance to shine again this year and provides hope for the future.
