The Prix de Lausanne acknowledges that some candidates cannot afford a trip to Switzerland nor the registration fees to take part in the competition. Since 2008, a special fund has been put aside to help aspiring candidates who ask for our help.
Since 2008, more than 350’000 CHF have been used to sponsor candidates from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Italy, Latvia, Paraguay, Portugal, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, Ukraine and the United States (among others).
Following their Prix de Lausanne adventure, many of these candidates got closer to achieve their dreams as they were offered to join some of our partner schools or companies.
The Prix de Lausanne is extremely proud and honoured to help those young talented dancers through their wonderful journey and wishes to pursue this mission while making it more noticeable and affordable.
