The video selection for the 2015 Prix de Lausanne will start this Thursday in Lausanne. During four days, our international jury will watch approximately 300 video files sent by young dancers from all around the world. Each applicant has submitted a digital video recording of himself/herself performing class work and a contemporary enchainement or variation in a studio environment.
The video file must be about 15 minutes in duration in order to provide adequate evidence of the applicant’s artistic, musical and technical capabilities.The selection panel will choose up to eighty candidates from the video applicants. They will come to Lausanne to participate in the remainder of the competition, the 43rd Prix de Lausanne from Sunday February 1st to Sunday February 8th, 2015.
