Matei Holeleu, Prize Winner 2020
Matei Holeleu (Romania) took part in our first Summer Intensive, held in Lausanne in 2019, where he got preselected for the Prix de Lausanne 2020. His participation in the Prix de Lausanne 2020 was incredibly successful, since he made it to the Finals and won a Scholarship! He is now an artist with the English National Ballet. We are very proud to have been able to give him a chance to get where he is with our Summer Intensive programme.
