American Friends

Join us and become a member of the American Friends of the Prix de Lausanne or support a specific project. Attend the Prix de Lausanne as a VIP guest and enjoy numerous tailor-made benefits !

Launched in 2023, the American Friends of the Prix de Lausanne Fund reunites a growing community of international patrons and organizations committed to support the mission of the Prix de Lausanne and foster its artistic partnerships with American artists, schools and companies.

Celebrating over 50 years of strong ties with the United States, the Prix de Lausanne is proud to have built a vast network of top-tier partner schools and companies across the USA, and to have enabled more than 85 American students – now leading dancers – to train at the highest level and launch their professional career thanks to a scholarship obtained at the Prix de Lausanne.

Please join us for the culmination of the 53nd edition of the Prix de Lausanne, one of the dance world’s most prestigious and highly anticipated annual events. The busy schedule, from Thursday, February 6 – Saturday, February 8, 2025, encompassing many of the highlights of Lausanne’s cultural and social season, will include studio visits and privileged behind-the-scenes access, the selection of finalists followed by a festive announcement cocktail, and the thrilling Finals gala performance featuring some of today’s biggest international names and most promising young talent, followed by an exclusive celebratory dinner at the historic Beau Rivage Palace gathering esteemed artists, jury members, prize winners and international patrons.

For those unable to join, you can still contribute to the future of a young artist by making a tax-deductible gift to the American Friends of the Prix de Lausanne Fund.
