Competition: Prix de Lausanne


The Prix de Lausanne, an international competition for young dancers, is open to young dancers of all nationalities aged 15 to 18 who are not yet professionals.

Its mission is:

  • To reveal the potential of exceptionally talented young dancers from around the globe by having them perform before a jury of world-renowned dance personalities

  • To open the doors to the world’s finest schools and companies for them by providing scholarships to the most prestigious international schools and companies

  • To promote their scholastic education (a dancer’s career is short-lived: from about age 18 to 38) by ensuring that they earn a high school diploma which will facilitate their career transition

  • To preserve their health by applying a strict health policy: eating habits and body mass index are scrutinised before the competition

Our partner schools approve our policy on health and scholastic education. They share our conviction that it is necessary to develop dancers’ all-round skills.

The Prix de Lausanne rewards potential rather than results. The competition week serves as a top-level annual meeting point for the international dance world.

Today the Prix de Lausanne has become not only a worldwide famous competition but also a meeting place for personalities of the dance world.
