The Prix de Lausanne, an international competition for young dancers, is open to young dancers of all nationalities aged 14 to 19 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
